Serving the Biryani:

  1. In a Microwavable dish(for future re heating purpose),place a layer of Rice,a layer of the Egg Masala  alternately till you have finshed both rice and masala(I had about 2 layers of each in my dish),I saved the Eggs from the Masala to be placed on the top for ease of serving.
  2. Put the Fried Cashew and Raisins on top,then the fried onion,Choped Corriander and lastly the Scrambles.
  3. You may want to Microcook for 2-3mts to let the masala aromas mix the rice thorougly.
  4. A raitha prepared out of Onion,tomato ,green chillies and curd is a good combination with a Kerala style papad.
