Cook's Tip:
cut thin potatoe slices and a bit of oil and spread at the bottom of the pan before adding your rice and meat. The rice dose not burn or stick to the pan the enjoy crispy potatoes chips with your biryani.
If you want to add curd (dahi) to any dish, it might get curdle. To avoid that, add a tablespoon of oil in the curd, mix it well and then add it to the dish, dahi wont curdle.
Always warm dry spices like cumin seeds, cardamom, cloves, etc. on a griddle before powdering. They will grind faster and the powder will be finer.
