Fish Selection: Choose fresh and firm fish, such as tilapia or kingfish, for the best flavor and texture in your Fish Biryani.

Marination: Marinate the fish pieces with a mixture of yogurt, spices, and lemon juice for at least 30 minutes to infuse flavor.

Spice Blend: Prepare a fragrant spice blend using ingredients like cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and cardamom to enhance the Biryani's aroma.

Rice Choice: Use long-grain Basmati rice, soaked for 30 minutes, for the perfect Biryani texture.

Layering: Layer the marinated fish and partially cooked rice in the Biryani pot, allowing the flavors to meld.

Herbs and Aromatics: Add fresh herbs like mint and cilantro, along with fried onions, to impart a rich, savory taste.

Saffron Infusion: Create a saffron infusion by soaking saffron threads in warm milk and drizzle it over the Biryani layers for a beautiful golden color.

Dum Cooking: Seal the Biryani pot with dough or foil and cook it on low heat to let the flavors meld through the Dum cooking technique.

Garnishes: Garnish the Fish Biryani with fried cashews, raisins, and a sprinkle of garam masala for added crunch and flavor.

Serve Hot: Serve your Fish Biryani hot with raita (yogurt sauce) or a side salad for a delightful and satisfying meal.
