In India, the aromatic rice dish known as biryani consists of layering cooked rice with spiced meat or vegetables before baking it. In this simplified version, everything is cooked in one pot on the stove.

I was excited to make this recipe and went to my health food store to get the right ingredients. I followed the recipe to the letter and was just rather disappointed with the outcome. It was dark and muddy looking (not as bright as the photo with the recipe) and just seemed mushy (flavor-wise) to me -- nothing stood out. Meh. I probably won't make it again. My husband eats anything and everything. The leftovers won't go to waste but he didn't rave about it, either. Sorry, FineCooking....
Excellent!! I used jasmine rice since I did not have basmati rice. I used black cardomon pods because I did not have green. Loved how easy it was to put together. Just served with a side salad. Can not wait to try the leftovers!
Spices blended beautifully. The house smelled delightful for two days. Followed the recipe exactly, and will do so again! If you enjoy Indian food, do this, soon.
Very good. Would benefit from a squirt of lemon or lime. Next time I'm going to use the same recipe with lamb.I was liberal with spices and used homemade curry powder.
