    The ingredients list calls for cardamom seeds but the directions say cardamom pods. I have both but need to know which to use. This sounds so delicious! Please send me a message.

    You can prepare any birani recipe in a rice cooker or any other for that matter. I find it is better to fry all ingredients for a short while first. Add rice, mix carefully to coat in spices and oil, then transfer all to rice cooker

    Hi there Phaqgood... you definitely can use a rice cooker just be monitor carefully the process thats all. I would advice that it might not taste as well though.

    Has anyone tried this or another biryani recipe in the rice cooker? I'd love a fuss-free method to make this wonderful dish.
