Water damage is a terrible thing to go through; however, it helps to know that Plumbers FL Services will be there quickly and efficiently when needed. Christian and Carlos make a great team. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They are a credit to the Plumbers FL, and I’m glad they were here to help me. Thank you Christian and Carlos and the Plumbers FL crew. I always call Plumbers FL, and recommend their services to neighbors and friends. Thank you.
We have used Plumbers Florida many times in the past. The technicians are always pleasant, professional and do outstanding work. Our last experience was with William who went above and beyond our expectations. His communication skills and advise were spot on. As well as just a really, really nice man!!!
For the rice:
3 1/2 c basmathi rice, washed and drained (no need to soak)
1/4 c ghee/oil / unsalted butter
1 stick cinnamon
4 pods green cardamom
Salt to taste
7 cups water
For the beef:
2 lbs/ 1 kg beef , cut into 2 inch cubes
2 big onions, sliced fine
10 green chilles, slitted (or to taste)
2 medium size tomatoes, chopped small
4 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 1/2 tsp red chilli powder (this is optional if you don’t want it to be too spicy, but I added it)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala
1/4 c yogurt, whisked
1 bunch coriander leaves/ cilantro , chopped
1 bunch mint leaves ,chopped
Salt to taste
Lime/lemon juice to taste
5 tbsp ghee/oil/unsalted butter
Wash and clean the rice.Drain out the excess water.
On medium- high,heat oil, add the spices and after 30 secs add the rice.
Fry the rice for 3-4 mins, stirring constantly. Add the water and salt to taste. Cover it and let it come to a boil. As soon as it boils, reduce the flame to medium- low and cook covered for 15 minutes.
After 15 mins, switch off the heat and fluff up the rice with a fork.
Heat the oil in a pressure cooker or a pan with tall sides. Add the onions and saute till soft and translucent.
Add the green chillies and saute till it is soft. Next, add in the tomatoes and cook till they become soft.
Add in the ginger garlic paste and mix well.Add the powders and mix well for a minute or 2.
Add the meat and mix well.Now, add in the whisked yogurt,herbs,salt and water if needed. Mix together for one last time and close the cooker with the lid. Cook for 5 whistles (It totally depends on how tender or how tough your meat is, I needed 5).Let the pressure go down on it’s own. Open the lid, stir, taste and see if everything is alright.
If there is too much gravy, cook and reduce it. If you need it to be a bit tangy, add some lime/lemon juice.
When I opened the cooker, it was perfect, the oil could be seen on top and the meat was cooked completely.
You will not need a lot of gravy or else the biriyani might taste watery after you assemble it. Make sure you have gravy to the level of meat.
