Rinse well until the starch content is all gone from rice and then soak.

Fluff carefully and don’t be in a hurry to open the cooker lid.

Kindly stick to the measurements of water and milk.

You can use Basmati rice too in this recipe.

The right measurement for a fluffy Kuska or Plain 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. For seeraga samba rice ensure to completely drain the water after soaking. So kindly don’t alter it.

Adjust spices according to your wish and taste.

Skip the salt for babies less than one year of age.

This can be given to babies above six months

Ensure to have introduced all items before and eliminate allergies.

Always have a word with your doctor before introducing any new food to babies
