It is very difficult to clean the wild mushrooms; I have already described the full process in my last article indigenous recipe of wild mushroom. Clean all fresh mushrooms, and wash with fresh water and cut it into slim slices.
Step 2. Prepare Rice and water
First of all, clean the Mughal rice and ensure that there is no dust of sand particles in rice. After that rinse the Mughal Rice very well in freshwater. Then soak the rice in clean fresh water for a few minutes.
Step 3. Prepare required masala for mushroom biryani
In the meanwhile, prepare all required masala including chopped onion, bay leaf, cumin seeds, green cardamom, black cardamom, cloves, green chilies, salt, ginger, garlic paste, red chili powder, etc.
Step 4. Cook Mushrooms
Put a deep bottomed pan on low high flame and put oil leave to heat, once the oil is hot enough, add baby leaf, cumin seeds, bay leaf, black paper, cardamom, cloves in it, and leave about half minute and then add chopped onion into it and cook until onion change the color to light brown. Now, add green chili, salt to taste, ginger garlic paste, red chili powder, and mix it properly and cook for a half minute then add mushroom and cook it properly.
Step 4. Boil the rice
Boil the Mughal Rice under low medium flame.
Step 5. Mix Cooked Mushrooms with boiled rice
Mix the cooked mushrooms into boiled rice and mix it gently. Your traditional mushroom biryani is ready to serve.

I love Biryani especially the meat one but I never had mushroom biryani! I would love to try to cook it, very exciting.
Looks delicious! I like meals that cook in one pot! Will make it soon!
I’m not a mushroom person but this does look so good. I’m torn!
I had to give the recipe 5 stars because I love the combination of spices, but I don’t know that I would like mushrooms in this particular recipe. I would probably prefer to substitute for chicken. But I think that people that eat mushrooms in this way will find this a perfect recipe!
Cooking has become one of my hobbies in the past time so I’d like to try this recipe even if I’ll not find the same ingredients since I live in another country. I’ll try 🙂 – Paolo
