Easy to make and smelled very nice cooking. I think there may be an error in the recipe as it lists fresh cut bean and then frozen cut beans. I used a cup of fresh only. I also used a regular masala mix not specifically for biryani. Other than that it worked just as it should. Read More

So good! A little spicier than I expected so next time I'll make some raita to go with it. It's pretty versatile too so it's easy to customize with whatever veggies you have on hand. Read More
