If you organize everything before cooking it is a very easy one-pot meal, and a simple raitha is enough to have a hearty meal. Actually it is not spicy like ordinary biryani. no chili powder, no biryani masala added. Tamil Hotel kuska is a mild and delicious biryani variety. Today am sharing the vellai kuska biryani recipe with step by step photos. A Youtube video is added for easy understanding.
By the way, I have a vegetable kushka recipe in my blog too but that involves more ingredients (and also tastes amazing!) but I just thought it would be nice to share an easy version of the same with you guys on the blog!
Tips to make perfect kuska:
- Here I have mentioned 1 cup rice and 1/3 cup coconut milk so water should be 1 & 3/4 cup. if you increase the rice proportion adjust it according to this measurement.
- I used coconut milk, it gives a very rich taste to this kuska biriyani recipe.
- If preferred add 1/3 cup of curd can be added, which gives a restaurant touch to the dish.
- The addition of fried bread makes the kuska biryani more rich and colorful don’t skip it. kids love this addition
- I have added Ghee+oil it will give a nice taste, you can go with only ghee also.
- For more flavor, you can add kewra water.
- the secret of kuska biryani is the black stone flower(star anise), never miss to add it, which lends a wonderful aroma to the whole dish.
- If you see the ingredients list I have used the chili only so adjust the number of chili as per your spice level to this kuska biryani recipe.
- You can use either Jeera/seeraga samba rice/ basmati rice but make sure that you soaked 1 hour in water before cooking. ( I used basmati rice)
- If you water kuska in white color like in hotel kuska style, don’t add tomato or red chili powder it will change the kuska color
- Veggie’s choice is purely optional, cauliflower, potato, etc can also be used.
