Mushroom Biriyani with Coconut Milk

Sunday lunch is always special and i make mostly biriyani for our lunch, though this one pot meal asks for grinding masalas and chopping vegetables i just love enjoy making this flavourful rice. Mushrooms have many more health benefits which include relief from high cholesterol levels, breast cancer, prostate cancer and diabetes. Its also helps very much in weight loss and increases your immune system.Mushrooms are good source of iron and not to forget that mushrooms are ideal for diabetic peoples as they have no fats,no cholesterol, high protein content and with loads of vitamins,minerals. They also contains lot of water and fiber.We are mushroom lovers, anything with mushroom is my hubby's favourite,he was super happy when i dished out this biriyani with mushrooms which is completely cooked in spiced and flavoured coconut milk.

Mushroom Biriyani, Mushroom Biryani

Am running my first week of blogging marathon with an interesting theme called Cook with coconut. Needless to say that this ultimate mushroom biriyani is completely cooked with coconut milk. If you are a follower of my blog, i love to cook biriyanis with coconut milk rather than cooking with yogurt. Trust me this mushroom briyani tastes absolutely fabulous as it is spiced with a wonderful array of flavourful spices and homemade freshly squeezed coconut milk. If you love mushrooms and biriyani, then this one pot meal is definitely a treat for you.
