Though i have tried many types of rice varieties like Zeera rice,Kala chana rice,Tamarind rice and many more,but this is very simple and quick made dish.This biryani is spicy,tangy and full of aroma.You can have this rice without anything like curd or any pickle,because its having pungent fragrance which needs nothing to be in your plate.But i have tried this biryani with with dahi ki sabji and fried mirchis. You can make this rice for kids tiffin also and they will be happy to see this yummy dish in their lunch boxes. I have added some caramelized onions on the top and some fried peas also ,which is giving an additional taste and crisp in every bite. A must try recipe as a main course which you can have it in lunch or dinner or you can also enjoy this with your evening tea.
