  7. When everything is fried add the spice powders – Turmeric powder , chilli powder , coriander powder , Briyani masala, coriander leaves and mint leaves. mix well
  8. When done, add mushroom and fry in medium heat for 5 minutes , add rice, 3 ½ cups water, salt and mix well.

  10. Open the cooker and 1 tsp ghee, lemon juice and mix gently.

My Tip:

You can replace Briyani masala with curry masala or garam masala , but I insist on Briyani masala. You can replace zeerasamba rice to Basmathi rice also.Water ratio for both the rice is the same 1:1.5 ( 1 cup rice to 1.5 cup water).You can increase the water level upto 2 cups based on the age of rice.
