An innovative blend of rice and pulses. When served with a bowl of low fat curd or raita, this can be a really healthy and satisfying dish.

A very tasty rice delicacy. However since I dont have a microwave I did the final assembling of Biryani in a handi and let it heat on a slow flame for 10 minutes.
