How many whistle should rice boil
Person Dahlia (S.I.R. Author)   (September 15, 2016)
I used an electric rice cooker which automatically switches off once it is cooked. If using a pressure cooker, I would say, cook for 2 whistles, reduce the flame and simmer for 5 minutes and switch off.

I am not sure if it will come out good.

If yogurt or coconut milk not available what to do
I am asking if we didn't add this the taste will differ
Person Dahlia (S.I.R. Author)   (July 28, 2016)
Hi Anand, If you do not have either, just add water. Coconut milk and yogurt gives a nice flavor but the biryani tastes good even without that.
