very good recipe …. how to know the accurate cooking time?

thanks nida.. the dum process itself take minimum 20 minutes. remaining steps can be done parallel. So it will take around 45 minutes for cooking and 15 minutes for preparation. I mentioned this time duration based on my trials. please do share your findings if you happen to try this.
