Cover the pan with a tight lid / plate. (Seal the lid / plate tightly, use dough for the better results so the steam doesn't comes out). Heat a griddle/ tawa on medium flame and put the pan on hot tawa / griddle. Dum (steam) the biryani for 20 minutes on low heat.
16. Serve hot and enjoy with some salad, raita or your favorite curry.
