    I am from IL. . I enjoyed mouth watering while reading this preparation at 11.30pm. Mere reading has given me appetite. What is the ratio by volume of basmati to coconut milk.
    2. Is coconut milk is preboiled before transferring it to pressure cooker?

      Thank you for Watching. You Have to add Raw Coconut Milk is 1.5 cup to 2 Cup for 1 Cup Basmati Rice,Like Briyarni. In Briyani You have to add Water, Here you have to add Raw coconut Milk instead of Water. That’s All. Stay Tuned with Me for more Healthy Recipes. Thank you for your Support.
