Mix everything well & saute until the raw smell is gone.

When Rice & Water boil’s & comes to the same level cover the pan with a tight lid & turn the heat off.

Let it sit there for about 20-25min.

( Don’t open the lid )




Open the lid & using a fork fluff the Rice & sprinkle some Coriander leaves.




Serve Shrimp Biryani hot with Raita & Pickle.




I tried my best to create a dish which is easy to do & uses only one pot to cook & satisfy your soul for the craving for Biriyani.

While cooking the Rice you should make sure you follow couple of steps properly.

1) Make sure you use boiling Water.

2)Make sure to keep an eye on the Rice coz it will reduce the level of Water very soon.

3)When you see the Water & Rice is on the same level make sure to use a tight lid to cover the pan.

4)Once the pan is closed & the gas is turned off make sure you don’t open the lid for another 20-25min coz the Rice is getting cooked with the steam trapped inside the pan.

If you follow these steps properly I can assure that you will get a perfectly cooked Rice every single time.
