Biriyani is one of those dishes where the sheer mention of it makes you salivate. Though it is believed to be of Persian origin, I must say, Biriyani is India’s pride.
I love all things biriyani and I always try and make the different varieties.
I am hoping to try out many more recipes because there really are hundreds of Biriyani dishes. But for now, here are a few of my favorite lip-smacking goodness of Biriyani recipes from across the country.
