Bring four cups of water to a boil in a
thick-bottomed vessel. Add bay leaf, cloves,
green cardamoms, black cardamoms, cinnamon, mace
and one teaspoon salt. When the water starts
boiling rapidly, drain the soaked basmati rice
and add. Cook for eight to ten minutes, stirring
frequently or until the rice is three fourths
done. Drain in a colander. Heat oil in a
non-stick pan, add sliced onions and stir-fry
over high heat for two to three minutes or until
the onion turns translucent. Add ginger paste,
garlic paste and sauté briefly. Add red chilli
powder, coriander powder, crushed peppercorns,
cumin powder and turmeric powder. Stir-fry
briefly and add the pureed tomatoes. Continue
cooking over high heat for another two to three
minutes, stirring continuously or until masala is
fairly thick. Add the whisked skimmed milk
yogurt, garam masala powder and half the quantity
of chopped fresh coriander and mint leaves. Stir
well and cook for two minutes more. Add the
quartered button mushrooms and salt to taste.
Stir-fry over high heat for two to three minutes
and remove from heat. Arrange the cooked rice and
mushroom masala in alternate layers in an oven
proof dish (or Biryani handi), sprinkling the
remaining chopped fresh coriander and torn mint
leaves, kewra water and saffron dissolved in
skimmed milk after each layer. Ensure that the
top most layer is of rice. Cover the assembled
biryani with a tight fitting lid and seal the
edges with kneaded atta dough (if required). Keep
the sealed dish on a medium hot tawa and leave
for ten to fifteen minutes. You can also place a
few burning charcoals on the lid. Alternatively,
leave the sealed dish in a preheated oven at
200?C for ten to fifteen minutes. Break the
seal and open the Biryani, just before serving.
