To grind:

  • Grated coconut(துருவிய தேங்காய்) – 2 tbspn
  • Cinnamon (பட்டை) – 1
  • Cloves(கிராம்பு) – 2
  • Cardomom (ஏலக்காய்) – 3
  • Fennel seeds( சோம்பு ) – 1/2 tspn
  • mint leaves(புதினா) 1/2 cup
  • Coriander leaves(மல்லி இலை) -1/2 cup

Shallots – 1 large sized for fried onions

Seeraga samba rice( சீரக சம்பா அரிசி) -2 cups


Take all ingredients and keep ready. Soak the rice for half an hour.

Grind all the ingredients under to grind in a mixer to a fine paste.

Now take a pressure cooker.

Add two tbspn of ghee and two tbspn coconut oil.

Once the oil heats up, add bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves, cardomom, anise seeds, then cashews and raisins.

Once all get fried, add onions and saute till golden brown.

Then add tomatoes and saute till mushy.

Next add the grind paste and curd and saute till oil separates.

Next add halved mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes.

Then add the well soaked Seeraga samba rice and water ( I used 2:1.5 proportion of water) and required amount of salt as per your taste and then add handful of coriander and mint leaves.

Close the cooker lid and wait for 1 whistle and simmer down for 5 more minutes. Then switch off the flame. Wait till all the pressure go by itself.

In the meantime deep fry the shallots for fried onions. Once you open the lid transfer it to another wide vessel( this will avoid over cooking of rice because of the cooker heat) . And garnish with fried onions.

Yummy mushroom biriyani is ready to be served with onion raita.

Hello friends✋✋,, I am a very usual home maker. Actually was a very normal cook 🙆who tried very bad recipes. But after my marriage when I was forced that I have to cook and no other go because me and my hubby were alone abroad I started taking cooking serious. I started out with lot of flop shows and my seriousness increased and I got explore with more proper and healthy cooking after my son born👨‍👩‍👧. I started being so conscious of his health and food habit. Still day I make sure he is always healthy. Healthy doesn't mean chubby and bubbly. May be chubby and bubbly looks to be cute but that is not only the concern. Hope all will enjoy my blogging. Will come out with healthy and homely recipes. This will surely be a support for ladies like 🍴.
