Kuska|plain biryani

One day, all in my family had went to neighbours function. I had some personal work, so I didn't go.For that day lunch I like to have a simple, but spicy single recipe. I think about biryani. But I don't have any vegetables or meat in my kitchen. I had only onion, tomato, chilli,etc... As essential in daily cooking. At that time I thought to have plain biryani. I did this without using any ready made ingredients. 

I here used red chilli, fresh garlic, fresh ginger. If you want you can add also ready made red chilli powder, ginger garlic paste. It is upto your wish to add garam masala or biryani masala. But I have skipped both garam masala and biryani masala , as I need mild spices flavour. 

As I loved this taste very much, I like to share kuska recipe with you all. Come lets see the direction.
