We are entering the second week of Blogging Marathon #65 and for this week I chose to share rice dishes.For the next few days I will be showcasing rice dishes with different method such as one pot meal,variety rice and layered rice dish.
Today's recipe is a one pot meal,kuska or plain biriyani.Kuska is flavorful biriyani made with aromatic spices with no meat or veggies.Some may use meat stock to cook the rice to get a rich taste.
Kuska is so popular in road side shops and canteens in Tamilnadu.As this rice is mildly spiced,usually it's accompanied with salna and raita.
We make it often for our week end lunch along with some spicy chicken or vegetarian curry.I made this for our lunch last week and this time I accompanied with Channa kurma.
- Cashews can also be added for extra rich taste.
- The amount of water depends on the quality of rice.
- Don not add too much of tomato.
- Do not cook for more than two whistles,otherwise the rice will turn out mushy.
