I have to try this Kacchi Biryani to get it right ? Does only soaking the rice without cooking it make it edible enough ? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks, Thanks to highlite my mistake in recipe. Rice must be boil in double quantity of water,approximately 2-3 min. Rice must too hard for preparation in a Biryani.
