Recipe for Vegetable Biryani


Biryani, the rich Indian rice dish. It has interesting history, some says it originated in Persia and was brought to India by the Mughals and some says it was originated by South India because it was brought by Arab Traders and rice was massively used by people. They prepared Pulao and then after they called Pulao as Biryani. Well, the exact origin of the dish is uncertain and who bothers, we just like the taste and always want to eat, eat and eat it.
