Our Indian-Tibetan friend came to our place on this past Monday, this biryani was the main dish we made for him. It was quite flavorful and tasty, he certainly enjoyed it, and so did we. There are lots of great flavors from all these delicious spices. In every spoonful, there were different veggies, rice, chickpeas, cashews, raisins. Yum. We served it with a Indian cucumber-yogurt sauce (raita). Very good.
