  8. Turn the heat to low and place iron dosa tawa and above that keep the cooking vessel in which u have done the above cooking.
  9. Cover the vessel with cloth and place lid on top and then keep heavy vessel on top.
  10. Cook the biryani on dum for 60 mins. Then switch off the flame and serve hot with raita.

If you don't have an iron dosa tawa, you can directly keep the vessel on the stove but remember to keep the flame on low.
