How many whistle should rice boil
Person   ()
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.

If yogurt or coconut milk not available what to do
I am asking if we didn't add this the taste will differ
Person   ()
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.
