Tips to make Perfect Kuska Biryani:

  1. Soaking time for Seeraga samba rice should be just 15 mins after 15 mins you need to drain the water and keep ready for cooking. More soaking time leads to soggy biryani.
  2. Water Measurement & rice measurement should be accurate. Add the water & rice ratio mentioned in the post accurately.
  3. Lastly adding ghee at the final stage helps to fluff up the rice.
