Fish biriyani 2 - with stepwise picture

I gave the title as fish biriyani 2 because I already posted one type of fish biriyani that is Thalassery biriyani. This one is different from the first one.

This is my first after shifted to my new home, a calm and quiet area compare to first one. But the kitchen is very small I don’t know how I will adjust this... The whole month I was very busy still have too many works. I am chasing for a target so will post new recipes frequently. I know I missed so many good recipes of my blogger friends but I will catch those soon.
