Kuska Biryani (Dindugul Style) | Plain Biryani Without Vegetables


       Kuska is a kind of biryani without any vegetables and it is a popular food in southern part of Tamilnadu. This is my mom aunty's recipe, whenever we go to her house in Dindugul, she makes this biryani for us. In this recipe, the long grain rice is cooked in a pressure cooker along with some aromatic spices, mint leaves, onion, tomato and ginger garlic paste. The outcome of the biryani is just flavorful, spicy and yummy. You can make this easy biryani, if you run out of veggies at home. Best accompaniment for this biryani are some vegetable gravy or protein rich gravy like mushroom curry or soy chunks curry and raita.
