Biryani is always a breeze to make. We love one pot meals, especially during travel or for those busy days. This Baby Potato Biryani is a flavourful biryani with baby potatoes. I saw this recipe in a cook book and made a few changes to suit our taste buds. This is yet another biryani made easily in a pressure cooker. All u need to do is marinate the baby potatoes and then the rest of the procedure can be done quickly. Baby potatoes are always a favourite and will be in my shopping list! I simply love the cuteness of the tiny potatoes.

Now to the recipe..

  • Add basmati rice along with water and salt. Add salt carefully as we have already added salt to the baby potatoes. Pressure cook for 1 whistle and simmer for 5 to 7 mins. Switch off the flame. Once the pressure releases, fluff it up with a fork.

Tips:

  1. Make sure to prick the baby potatoes so that it absorbs the marinate. Else they will be tasteless.
  2. The more time it marinates, the more the taste.
  3. U can use normal potatoes too. Just cube them and continue with the rest of the process.
