previously i use to prepare the veg biryani or hyderabadi dum biryani with store bought biryani masala powder. but i never use to get the restaurant style taste and flavour for my veg biryani. the main reason was my biryani masala powder and i always felt it was lacking with spice level and aroma. since then is started to prepare my own masala powder and i could easily control the spice level required in my biryani rice. not to forget about the preservatives and artificial colour added in the store bought spice powder. basically it is added to improve the shelf life and to make it more attractive. however, it would definitely compromise with the authenticity and spice level of spice powder.

furthermore, i would like to add few tips and suggestions for a perfect homemade biryani masala powder. firstly, i have used coriander seeds and dry red chilies in this recipe for the real taste. if you do not have or running short of it, you can use coriander powder and red chilly powder for this recipe. moreover you can also add pomegranate powder or anardana powder and mix it with biryani spice powder. basically it helps to tenderise the meat and is used specifically for meat biryani recipe. finally, store the spice powder in air tight container in a dry place for a longer shelf.

finally i would request you to ckeck my other masala recipes collection with this post. this mainly includes, garam masala, pav bhaji masala, bisi bele bath masala, vangi bath masala, sambar powder, idli podi, sandwich masala and rasam powder recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection like,
