Biryani! The name itself is enough to get us into a feast mode, isn’t it? Be it a dinner party or our upcoming acting, Biryani magically takes care of everything. But what about a pot meal that no one can resist? Perhaps the aromatic drama of exotic spices such as star anis, bay leaf, cloves and saffron with a kind of fragrant meat of saffron is tossed with a piece of succulent meat, neatly with rice. Or the sheer diversity that a different type of biryani can be found in every corner of the country.
