Healthy Briyani

This a simple way of cooking bryani rice... no added milk or yogurt...

Wash basmati rice(4-1/2cup of rice and soak for 1/2hour). Heat the saucepan and add 2 tablespoon of ghee, saute pounded ingredients(6garlic and 1inches of ginger) and add 1stick cinnamon, 4 cloves, 1 lemongrass slightly bruised) and if you like you can add some bryani paste and cook till the paste is crispy. At the  same time ... add hot boiling water into the electric cooking rice till level measurement reaches at 5 cup... cover the rice cooker till it is boiling.. now you can transfer sauteed garlic and ginger ... into the rice cooker and add in the basmati rice(strain the soaked rice) and some salt... cover and cook as normal.

Take some saffron and soak with hot water.... When the rice is cooked ...make 5 holes on surface of the rice and pour in the saffron colour... and cover again the rice cooker... and cook it again till it is cooked ... using the fork to make the rice look fluffy.... You can add crispy fried onion and crispy fried slice almond on the rice
