October 8, 2019 Biryani/PulaoKeerai/SpinachRice Varieties  No comments

Spinach Biryani is an easy and nutritious one pot meal, perfect for lunch boxes. This Spinach Biryani happened on the day I had nothing in the fridge except for spinach. We were in no mood for Spinach Kootu, rice etc etc. All we wanted was Biryani πŸ™‚ Trust me, this tasted totally yumm! We loved the aroma that filled the house and while opening the cooker. It was just wow! I was actually wondering if I should grind the spinach or use it as is. Ended up with the second choice. Shall update here when I try the other here.

Its been a long time since I posted any biryani recipe here. This Chana Biryani or Chickpeas Biryani is an aromatic, protein packed biryani perfect to pack for lunch. It is a simple and easy recipe too. All u have to plan for is the soaking time of chana/chickpeas. My all time favourite is this humble Tomato Biryani.

Lunch Menu 7 – Biryani Meal

February 23, 2019 Biryani/PulaoLunch Menu Series  No comments

This lunch menu is a Biryani Meal along with a gravy. Made this on a weekend. On the plate is Veg Biryani, Ennai Kathirikkai, Onion Raita(my hubby’s style) & Potato chips (store bought). We love to switch to this menu in between the boring kuzhambu, rasam & poriyal meals. Usually biryani would be paired with just the onion raita. This time paired it with Ennai Kathirikkai, my all time favourite combo.
