    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.

    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?

    Hi sailu,

    This came out awesome. I substituted chilli powder with an extra green chilli and had omitted coconut.
    It was still great!
