Really NOT cool to put this as'one serving' and NO nutritional info. This does not save time for cooks interested in nutrition and calorie amounts. Nice that someone else tried to do that.

Next time I will cut cinnamon in half, add a few cardamoms and 4 or five whole cloves, but this us a solid base recipe for biryani.
