as i was explaining earlier, in this post i have shown 2 ways to prepare a bowl of non-sticky rice. my personal choice is the first one or using the boiling method. basically it is the quicker one also you would be in more control. however, it needs an additional soaking time of minimum 20 minutes as compared to the second one. in the second option, i have directly taken the rinsed rice and roasted with ghee. it helps to absorb all the flavours and makes it non-sticky. however, it comes with an additional risk of over roasting and it may spoil the end result. if it is over-roasted, it may split and you may not achieve long grain cooked rice. hence depending upon your interest and preference choose these options accordingly.

furthermore, some more tips, suggestions and variations to how to make biriyani rice recipe. firstly, you should only use basmati rice for this recipe. avoid using other short-grained rice like sona masuri or ponni rice. typically short-grain contains more starch in it and it may turn sticky. secondly, once rice is cooked it has to be washed with cold water to stop overcooking. also, it is washed it is recommended to spread it out in a plate to completely dry. lastly, the dry spices i have added while cooking the rice is a must for biriyani. however, it is optional for pulao and particularly for fried rice. hence add or subtract the spices as per your end product.
