Ditch the usual Biryani and try this!

Being biryani lovers, we totally recommend biryani to become the national dish of India! Haven’t come across a single person who doesn’t like biryani. Be it mutton biryani, prawn biryani or most commonly had chicken biryani, everyone has one favorite at least. So much so, the vegetarians call their pulao biryani too 😉

But, have you had all the varieties of biryani? Bet not! We get you a list of biryanis that are popular in different parts of India and you should try at least 2 of them this month 😛

The constituents of the dish are mainly rice, meat, vegetables and spices. In fact, the Sindhi Biryani has ended up to become a frequent meal on the international flights through Pakistan

  • Memoni Biryani:

Famous in Gujarat and Sindh region of India and Pakistan, it is known to be extremely spicy. How it differs in the recipe than the Sindhi Biryani is that it uses fewer tomatoes in the preparation.
