Kuska or Plain Biriyani has always been my favourite ever since I had it in my college canteens and during my friends’ weddings.Being a pure vegetarian this would only be the option for me to choose in a lavish non-vegetarian menu.Mom doesn’t make this as it bit too spicy than the usual level we use at home. My sister was the one who first tried a kuska recipe from here during our last vacation and from then I got glued to it.I just tweaked a bit to adjust to family’s taste and now this has become one of my standard recipes.You can make it with even plain rice or basmati or seeraga samba.Hubby loves Kuska or Plain Biriyani when made with seeraga samba.
