Egg Biryani

Briyani is my most favorite one pot dish. Few years ago I developed a liking towards Biryani. I love to try Biryani’s from different regions of India. But before that – What is Biryani? It is a rice dish that is cooked with spices, veggies or meat in layers. It is normally served with yogurt based dish called raita. Biryani tastes best the day after it is made. All the flavor from the spices gets absorbed in every grain of rice. This egg biryani is very easy to make and palatable.
