2I am delayed to post this recipe. I was planning to post this recipe for Eid. But my son is not keeping well. Hence not able to cook anything elaborate.

I always thought biryani is a complex recipe. But this cooker version is comparatively easier. Only the preparation time should be taken into consideration.I got it for lunch for couple of my colleagues and they loved it.

Hope you will try the recipe and enjoy the pictures. 1
