Seeraga Samba Rice Vegetable Biriyani Recipe

Seeraga Samba Rice Vegetable Biriyani Recipe:

Seeraga Samba Rice Biriyani has a special unique flavour associated with it. The speciality of it is very evident with its popularity. My husband likes biriyani with seeraga samba and he insists to basmati only for pulao & fried rice recipes. Given below is a no-fail recipe from my kitchen. Technically speaking this is also pulao because of the method. But the taste and flavour are similar to that of biriyani. So you can even call it One Pot Biriyani Pulao. Who cares about the name? Taste is the most important one. Am I right?

My observations:

The right measurement for a fluffy biriyani is a total of 1.5 cups of liquid(be it coconut milk or puree or plain water) for 1 cup rice, soaked for 30 minutes.

Adjust spices according to your wish and taste.
