I layered the biryani in a pot and cooked it in cooker putting very little water and without a whistle. This helped in non sticky - non burnt biryani
If you are planning to layer the biryani in cooker itself you might want to use the trick of layering boiled potatoes so that biryani doesnt get burnt. More details in Chicken Biryani Recipe

    there are 6halves + 3 more eggs were made into bhurji and put into the biryani ... so in all 6 full eggs. Good enough for more than a week i guess ;-)
