I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Shrimp Biryani (Indian Shrimp and Rice)" from amreen. It says:
"Heat the oil on medium in an oven safe dish. Add the peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and 1 bay leaf. Saute until fragrant, approximately 2-3 minutes."
I have ground cloves but not whole cloves. I also have whole allspice and juniper berry (which I think is vastly different than the whole clove!) Is it better to substitute with ground cloves, or what else could you recommend? I am so thrilled so far with the aromas from this Oscar Awards dinner recipe, and nothing is even cooking yet!)
