*Spicy Mushroom Biryani

This spicy and perfect for the monsoons recipe has its inspiration from Veg Recipes of India...
Dassana whips out amazing recipes...
I had to tweak it a bit ,as I ran out of some ingredients(like I used my old mint chutney ,instead of fresh ground mint n dhania)

So here is my tweaked recipe..
Full credits to Dassana :)
1.Basmati rice 2 cups
Wash and soak for 30 min
Mushrooms 1 pack ,washed dried and quartered
2.Masala to be ground
Half cup of mint leaves,half cup of coriander leaves, green chillies to taste, garlic and ginger.
3.Masala Powdered
Turmeric 1/2 spoon
Chilly powder to taste
Coriander powder 1 tbsp
Garam Masala 2 pinches
4.Water for cooking the Biryani.
(Add a mix of one cup of coconut milk and 3 cups of water ,for 2 cups of rice)
5.Whole Garam Masala
A few cloves, cardamom, a piece if cinnamon, bay leaf, cumin seeds
6.One large onion sliced thin
7.Two tomatoes diced
8.Coriander Leaves for garnishing
1.After the rice is soaked, drain and add a tsp of ghee and mix it..marinate for 20 mins.
2.Make a paste of the ground Masala and the powder Masala with 3 to 4 tbsp of curd.
Rub it on to the cut mushrooms and keep aside.

3.Heat oil in a cooker and add the whole garam masala .
Once it sizzles, add the sliced onions and saute till it turns golden brown.
