  8. Cover it with a lid and cook in medium flame with lid on. When the mushroom mixture is done put off the flame and keep it aside. The mixture should look thick like gravy. (I cooked both rice and gravy side by side to cut down time)

  13. When you are done with adding all the rice, just create a flat layer using a spatula and garnish it with fried onion, fried cashews and dry grapes.
  14. Cook in low flame 10 to 15 minutes. I used a heavy bottomed non stick pan in order to prevent the bottom getting burnt. (You can place the pan or vessel on a preheated dosa tawa and then cook in low flame to prevent burning if bottom layer)
