Our house LOVES this!! Although we find it a bit mild for our tastes so chuck in some fresh chilli and some garam masala to give it a bit more taste.
I omitted the cauliflower and peas; otherwise followed the instructions to a T. The flavour was in the vegetables, while the rice was bland and slightly overcooked. As a simple rice and vegetables dish, it was fine. As birynani, not really. I won't make this again.
This was a very good recipe. It tasted a bit different from the biryani I have had in the past, and I could not put my finger on the reason. Perhaps it's just a regional difference.
This was so good! I made a couple of changes since I wanted to use what I had on hand. I used ginger paste instead of fresh ginger, used some frozen carrots and peas , and didn't use the cauliflower, bell pepper, or raisins since I didn't have them on me. I sprinkled some toasted almonds on the top.
This didn't have the right flavor for me. I also found it odd that the rice and vegetables aren't mixed before baking. Not the biryani I was looking for.
Great recipe! It took a bit of preparation but well worth it! I served it for friends and the verdict was unanimous - delicious!
I love this recipe! Excellent spice mix! Next time though, I'm going to do a lot of prep work before I start cooking.
