After 20mins of cooking 
Your Egg dum Biryani is ready to serve with Onion Raita or any Gravy.

  • I usually don't use colors You want it colorful You can use saffron mix it with milk,or any colour mixed with water.Or simply you can add 1/4 tsp of turmeric pwd when cooking rice.
  • You can use any container that have perfect lid(the lid should be tight)so that the vapour will not escape.
  • The other option is cooking using Oven.You can refer to chicken biryani using oven.
