  55. Jay a doubt here...dum here means a heavy bottomed vessel?I mean should I need to keep a heavy bottomed vessel above the container closed with moist cloth?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks for stopping by n ur inspiring feedback..!
    btw..for dum biryani, after the cooking process is over, we seal it with moist cloth. Place it over a thick girdle kept on low flame for 10 to 15 mins. This makes the biryani fluffy n aromatic.
    giv a try n enjoy..;)
