I have used 2 tsp SRR Veg Pulav(Biriyani) Masala, 1 tsp Aachi Biriyani Masala, 1 tsp Everest Biriyani Masala

Remove the outer skin, innermost part of tender raw jack fruit, cut them into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture below. Put this in a vessel containing water, little salt and keep it aside for about 30 mins.

Cut the Green Chillies into two halves. Chop the Onion into thin slices. Chop coriander leaves and mint leaves into medium pieces as shown in the picture below. Wash the rice in water and keep it aside.

Add cumin seeds, cloves, cinnamon pieces, bay leaves, ansi seed, cashew nuts, ghee and heat. Fry them in medium flame for about 1-2 mins. 

Add ginger garlic paste, green chillies and fry them for about 1-2 mins.

Add chopped onion and fry them in medium flame for about 4-5 mins. 

Add salt, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and fry them for about 1 min. 

Add chopped coriander and mint leaves and mix them well. Fry this in low flame for about 1-2 mins.

Add washed rice, Biriyani Masala and mix them well. Fry this mixture in low flame for about 2-3 mins. 

Add Tender Jackfruit chunks and mix them well.

Add the curd/yogurt and mix them well.

Add the water (5.5 cups for Sona Masuri Rice /  4.5 cups for Basmathi Rice), salt and mix them well and cook. (3 whistles - 2 whistles on high flame and 1 whistle on medium/low flame)

Once the pressure goes off, remove the lid and then mix well.

Serve hot along with any Raitha. The mentioned ingredients will serve around 7-8 plates of Biriyani.

Tips (ಸಲಹೆ):
 * For Basmathi Rice, use less water (For 1 cup Rice - 1.5 cups Water)
 * Jackfruit can be refrigerated for abt 3-4 hrs before cutting to reduce the wax in it
 * ಬಾಸ್ಮತಿ ಅಕ್ಕಿಗೆ ಕಡಿಮೆ ನೀರು ಹಾಕಿ ( 1 ಕಪ್ ಅಕ್ಕಿಗೆ - 1.5 ಕಪ್ ನೀರು)
 * ಕೊರೆಯುವ ಮೊದಲು ಹಲಸಿನಕಾಯಿಯನ್ನು ಫ್ರಿಡ್ಜ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಇಟ್ಟರೆ (3-4 ಗಂಟೆ) ಮೇಣ ಕಡಿಮೆ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ
