i am an ardent follower of biryani recipes and as a matter of fact, it is one of the frequently prepared dishes for our lunch and dinner. we both personally like dum style cooked biryani with biryani rice and its biryani gravy are cooked in layer or dum style. having said that, i simply relish my biryani with an onion and tomato salad or raita, but my husband enjoys it when it is served with biryani gravy recipe or biryani shorba. his rationale is mainly about the dum style where there are more plain rice and the gravy for biryani helps to spread the spice and flavour evenly. to be honest, i second his argument, but after preparing the biryani itself, i feel lethargic to make extra side dish. yet, this gravy can be made well ahead in advance and can be served whenever it is required.
