VEG BIRYANI - 2

This recipe was published in a local daily City Journal, a few days ago by Ms. Saramma Luios. In her recipe she added only mushrooms, but I did not have stock at home so I just added vegetables. The reading really made me my mouth water. I was just waiting for the right time to try this biryani. I had prepared this last week and it came out so well and every one in my family loved this unique aroma of the coconut milk. I too loved it.... Why dont you try...?
