Briyani Rice

Remember I made Briyani Rice on a Fourth of July? Hope you enjoy this recipe.

Ingredients for Briyani Rice:

4 Cups of White Basmati Rice
6 Cups of Water (the ratio of rice to water is 1:1 1/2)

1/8 teaspoon of Cardamon Powder
1/2 teaspoon of Cumin Powder
1/4 teaspoon of Tumeric Powder
1 teaspoon of Fennel Seeds
1 teaspoon of Multi-colored Pepper corn

1/2 stick of salted Butter or 4 tablespoons of Butter (optional)

2 whole Star anise seeds
1/2 a stick of Cinnamon
Clove powder
1 cup of Raisins
1 cup of Cashews


Soak rice submerged in 6 cups of water for 1/2 an hour. Add the ingredients for the Briyani into a rice cooker in the order above. Cook the rice at normal white rice setting for fuzzy logic rice cooker until done. I omitted the butter for less greasy rice.
