Mushroom Biriyani

Mushroom Biriyani is a quick and easy meal. I make it quite often when I'm lazy to cook something elaborate . It is a tasty dish to pack for lunch too...


Closed up or button mushrooms - 250 gms (cut each into 4 or more pieces)
Onion - 1 finely chopped
Tomato - 1  finely chopped
Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon - a small piece
Cloves - 2 or 3
Cardamom - 2
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp (Check cooking tips for the recipe)
Basmati Rice - 1.5 cups
Hot water - 3 cups
Lemon juice - 2 tsp
Coriander leaves - to garnish


1. Heat oil in a big pan and add the fennel seeds, cardamom,cinnamon and cloves.
2. Add onions and saute till soft.
3. Add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute.
4. Add tomatoes and when they turn soft, add the masala powders and saute for a minute.
5. Add mushroom pieces and cover and cook for 2-3 mins. Mushroom releases lot of water.

8. Garnish with coriander leaves.
