  1. Sailu, I am woundering how come your rice is not greenish. I believe you added Pudina and green chilli paste. Good you maintained the color and is not very greeny.

  2. hey sailu….i too cook this… but i dont use chilli powder… try it once… use only green chillis for kaaram….u get nice green colour…..combine it with nice red colour chicken curyy… mmmm yummmyy combo for eyes nose n mouth…ha ha ha

  3. Nice rice dish,
    adding grated coconut will give a nice flavor!
    this is more of andhra style I guess.
    Doe we also have Andhra style biryani?

  4. Hi sailu,

    It was still great!
