Frequently Asked Questions How can I make the biryani moist?
You can cook rice and chicken separately and then combine everything or set the layers.
How do I prevent my biryani from turning mushy?
Avoid overcooking the rice as it can ruin the biryani. Always slow-cook the biryani so that all flavors are combined well, and the biryani turns out to be perfect.
What can I use as a substitute for saffron milk?
Saffron step is entirely optional. However, this adds a pop of colour to your biryani. You can also add food colour instead of it.
