The rich flavour of the gravy and the succulent crunch of deep-fried baby potatoes make this Aloo Biryani an experience to remember.
Here, perfectly cooked rice is layered with a spicy gravy and deep-fried baby potatoes, along with some mint and coriander leaves to enhance the flavour and aroma.
The whole arrangement is then cooked in a microwave or traditional oven to get the ‘dum’ effect, which causes the flavours of the gravy to blend with the rice and potatoes, giving you a really terrific biryani.
Making traditional biryanis like this takes some time and effort but it is completely worth it!
