I followed exactly same instructions as you mentioned above. Specially your picture helps me a lot to make it easier. I used SUHANA veg biryani masala instead of the pictured veg biryani masala. Also I add paneer (fried it first) and soya chunks (fried). But I was confused at one place that 1)when we layered it in pressure cooker with rice, should i add a little water??? 2)do i add the pinch of salt in rice while boiling or add differently somewhere in between cooking?? Kindly help with above 2 questions. Overall.... The biryani was really so tasty. I never been think that the "dum" was so easy. Thank you once again. And thank you betterbutter.
