 Notes :
  • I have used ready made coconut milk, you can also use home made coconut milk, both taste good.
  • You can soak a pinch of saffron in 2 tsp milk and add it before closing the cooker, It will give nice  color and flavor to the rice.
  • You can add pinch of salt while sauteing onion to speed up the cooking  process.
