Pulao and Biryani are my alternate choice for the weekend but I love to make another version of something in between and named “Riwayati Biryani” which is my mom special pilaf recipe(an authentic recipe) and our family favourite.This recipe doesn’t require any extra pot and preparation. The most simple and yummiest rice recipe you can try without any fear….I Promised!!
