  • Again switch on the stove now and add green peas and enough water to cook rice(ie. for 2 cup rice i always use 4 cups water, so to cook mutton have added 1 cup already and now add 3 cups water) and remaining half cilantro n mint leaves and allow it to boil.june3
  • Once it starts boiling add soaked & drained rice and cook till rice done or u can pressure cook for 1 whistle.
  • I usually cook without pressure, i cook in medium high heat till the 80% water drained, after that i turn the heat to low and then cover the vessel with clean kitchen towel then put the lid and cook for 6-7 minutes.BIRIYANI
