MUSHROOM BIRIYANI

This is a very popular South-indian biryani with mushroom.  Mushroom contains 80-90% of water and are very low in calories(only 100cal/oz). Mushrooms are an excellent source of potassium, a mineral that helps lower elevated blood pressure and reduces the risk of stroke.

Basmati Rice : 1 1/2Cup, washed and drained
Mushroom : 500g, Halved
Onion  : 2, thinly Sliced

Black peppercorns :1tsp
Cardamom : 3 pods
Cloves : 3
Cinnamon  :1inch stick



Method  :

1. Dry roast all ingredients for biriyani masala on a skillet and grind  it to a fine powder after it cools. 

2. Make a paste of ginger, garlic, green chilli, mint leaves and half of the coriander leaves. Heat Ghee and coconut oil in a pressure cooker and add the ginger+ garlic+mint+chilli+coriander paste to the oil and cook till you get a nice aroma. Now add onion and cook till they turn to golden brown in color. Add tomato and saute well over medium flame.

3. Add the dry roasted biriyani masala and chilli powder and stir in for 2minutes. Now add the mushrooms and basmati rice and combine well with the masala. Add salt and Cook for 3minutes.

4. Now add coconut milk, 2 1/4 Cups of water and lemon juice. Cover the pressure cooker with a lid and cook till done.(i cooked for 1whistle and kept for 5minutes before opening the cooker).

5. Garnish with the rest of coriander leaves and serve hot with raitha.
