I understand that this method of sealed cooking enables the natural flavors or juices to be imparted into the rice. I can see how it works for meats, but how is it for eggs?

This is by far the EASIEST, FASTEST and TASTIEST recipe for a biryani. The chillies give the biryani the flavour (atleast when I cooked it.) Thank you very much for uploading.
