What Is Biryani Curry?

As with so many traditional recipes there are many different versions of a birayani depending on where you live. It is a dish eaten all across the Indian subcontinent, from Pakistan to Bangladesh, Afghanistan to India. In essence it’s your favourite curry buried under a mound of delicately spiced fluffy rice, all made in one pot. The rice is steamed over a low heat so it absorbs the flavours of the curry bubbling away underneath.
