    I have to disagree with all of the other comments, the recipe is right nothing is wrong she ysed 1/4 cup at first and added the rest later with the water... Anyway for me it was nice fluffy rice beautiful spices, but I couldn't taste the coconut milk or see the effect of using it, mean if I only used water it will taste the same. I tried this recipe in the first place to use the coconut milk I have..well maybe the milk I have isn't good...I don't know. Thanks for the effort anyway.

    Terrible! Don't waste your time & $ making this! It's not what I know as Biryani! Tastes too sweet, even though I used unsweetened coconut and coconut milk!!! Threw it all away. A waste. This is not a Martha recipe but one of Lucinda Quinn Scala's from Mad Hungry. Her recipes are not reliable. Made her blueberry bran muffins and they were horrible!!! Dry, tasteless, cardboard. Threw them all away as well. Beware of her recipes. Martha's recipes are reliable.

    On the show they used 6 cloves of garlic...the way the recipe is written on the website they say to use 6 cloves. Very different tastes. Also, on the show, Lucinda adds 1/4 cup of coconut milk, this recipe calls for 1 cup. This will definitely affect the final results. Which one is correct?

    i make basmatic rice a lot and in this recipe everything clumped together. maybe i shouldn't have rinsed the rice earlier today and let it dry. it tastes wonderful, but i could use it as wallpaper paste it's so thick. such a shame.
