semiya biryani recipe

the semiya biryani recipe isn’t that complicated, but you may have to follow some tips and suggestions to make it perfect. firstly, ensure to roast the semiya before you start with biryani gravy. the semiya has to cool down before it is mixed with gravy. also once the vermicelli is added to gravy it only required 4-5 minutes to get cooked. so plan it accordingly. secondly, you may want to reduce the size of veggies used for this recipe. note that in rice-based biryani, veggies are chopped in fairly large size. lastly, you can also attempt to cook this recipe via dum style. you may have to boil/cook the vermicelli separately and then layer it once the gravy is ready.

  • additionally, whisk the curd well else there are chances for curd to curdle.
  • finally, semiya biryani / vermicelli biryani recipe tastes great when prepared spicy.
