    We tried today. But we added Star Anise with the spices specified here and added some pepper while grinding cashew nuts. Here poppy seeds are banned .But it turned out very well. It looks something similar to yummy Chettinadu Biriyani available here in some Anjappar Chettinadu restaurant.Thanks a lot.
