    Fish Biryani

    Craving for a biryani? But find it too elaborate to cook? Then you must try the Hyderabadi style Fish Dum Biryani. It is usually cooked with the long grains of aromatic basmati and chicken, mutton or lamb. But you could substitute fish for chicken and have an amazing biryani to relish over the weekend.
