Notes:

Please have a check on the bottom of the pot. It shouldn’t get burnt.

Be gentle when to toss or mix the rice in the pot.

Drizzle some ghee if you find the bottom is getting heated more.

Do the entire process in low flame.

Adjust spices as per your taste.

You can finally add fried onions and saffron too.

I have added marinated paneer at the end.

How to store traditional rice varieties? They are prone to worms and insects soon.

These indigenous rice varieties don’t need fertilizers or chemicals to grow. So you have to store carefully to avoid any bugs. You can buy two or three varieties every month in minimal quantity and try. Prefer using red chillies and vasambu or bay leaves inside open packets. If you buy in large quantities please freeze them and used dried neem leaves in the container.

How to season a clay pot?
  1. Dip the clay pot in water for a day.
  2. Slightly scrub with coir and wash it.
  3. For 4-5 days keep them soaked in drained rice water.
  4. Keep changing the water every day.
  5. After 5 days coat the pot with oil completely and let it absorb.
  6. Fry some onions and remove them.
  7. Wipe with a cloth and scrub with coconut coir and use.
  8. Every time clean with a soft scrub and dry it.
What other rice variety can I use?

You can use Basmati Rice, Gandhasaala or Seeraga Samba. The water and cooking procedure will remain the same. Among both the types of seeraga samba, my vote would be for the slim one, especially for this biriyani. You can try using a roti to seal and make like purdah biriyani too.

I don’t get a banana leaf. What is the alternative?

You can use an aluminium foil to wrap and seal. But I would recommend a plate to close and cook if you can’t get a banana leaf.

I don’t have a clap pot/ Matka. What is the alternative?

The clay pot and the banana leaf infuse a very natural flavour and aroma to the biriyani. If you don’t have one use a thick bottomed pan and replicate this type of cooking as shown in my veg. dum biriyani recipe
