Method of preparation: To prepare fish biryani, first cook the rice. But keep in mind that rice should not be cooked much. If the rice is cooked too much then the real taste of the biryani will not come because the rice sticking in the biryani does not taste good. While cooking rice, add some oil in it, so the rice will not stick together. When the rice is cooked, take out its water and spread it on a plate. Now wash and chop the fish at least two to three times and keep it aside. If you want, you can cut the pieces of fish a little bigger in size.
Then put a deep vessel with a flat surface in the gas and add ghee to it and let it heat up. When the ghee becomes hot, add bay leaf, cardamom, green chilies, cloves, cinnamon and finely chopped cashews and fry. After two to three minutes, add ginger paste, garlic paste, turmeric powder and salt.
Cook it on low flame till the raw aroma comes out from the spices. Now put the pieces of fish in it and fry until the fish becomes golden brown on both sides. Now add cooked rice and grated coconut and mix it lightly. Now add garam masala powder and water and let it cook for ten minutes on low heat.
