Awesome biryani. My hus band made it for dinner tonight and it turned out great!! Even with his not-so-expert methods, it was cooked to perfection and there was good flavour throughout. Thumbs up for this one!!

Nice recipe!
How much water do you use to boil the rice?
How long do you boil the rice for?
Do you drain the rice before adding to the shrimp?
