    How to spice up your biryani?-easy tips
    For treating the taste buds, ‘ Biryani’ is a perfect feast. If your biryani lacks flavor, you must pay
    attention in some areas. Lets me help you with the easy-to-understand tips to make your
    biryani a tastier and spicier one; let’s take a look below:
  6. Use basmati rice
    Perfection of biryani mainly lies upon the quality of rice, so it is highly suggested to opt for
    basmati rice for biryani. I will not recommend brown rice as they are suitable for khichri or
    palao but not for biryani. Basmati rice is absorbing; they sop up the aroma and taste perfect.
  7. The right proportion of rice and meat
    You should take an equal proportion of meat and rice for cooking a perfect biryani. Take advantage of
    the ratio so the results will be fruitful.
  8. Wide dutch oven pot
    A thin base pot is not recommended for biryani. You should use a wide dutch oven pot because it is
    broad, thick-bottomed. It can amass plenty of water with all the spices, so a wider pot is a must-have.
  9. Get the rice steep before cooking.
    It is essential to steep rice before cooking biryani as the steeped rice tend to be fluffier. The
    recommended time for soaked rice is half an hour.
  10. Adding up spices in boiling water
    While boiling water for biryani, add all the spices, including pepper, cumin, cardamoms, and bay leaf.
    After the water changes its color, put soaked rice in the boiling water. Give it approximately ten minutes
    until it is 70% percent cooked.
  11. The precise amount of salt
    The proper ratio of salt in biryani is crucial. The easy way to check it is to taste the yakhni (soup), which
    has to be salty and pungent.
  12. Keep tabs on the ticking off the clock.
    You have to check the doneness of biryani; you can check by meshing up a few grains. Make sure the
    rice has to be unmeshed; in simple words, two kani rice.
  13. Preparation of thick korma curry
    Prepare a korma curry a few hours before; make sure you cook a thicker gravy. It has to be juicy, not dry
    at all.
  14. High-flamed Bhunnai
    Bhunnai is when curry leaves the oil. Turn the flame high when it’s time to make the oil go separate. Add
    a little oil during this bhunnai process.
  15. Finally steaming step (dum)
    This is the final step to Dum the Biryani (steaming up). On a broader pot, you combine rice and meat;
    the key is to trap the steam in a pot. It has to be airtight. You have to seal the dish with aluminum foil
    paper and put a lid on it.
    So there are simple tips and tricks to spice up your biryani; following them, you will be able to bring
    epic biryani to the table
