In our extended family we have about eight different biryani recipes, some written in an old notebook, some typed up into a shared online document, some hastily written out on WhatsApp when one of us is at the store urgently texting someone else to ask what to buy. This is my absolute favourite recipe, and is so strongly associated with my brother-in-law that it’s universally referred to as “Karthik’s biryani”. I adapted it slightly to make it in the instant pot, and added in potato and eggs. (Because my resident Bengali will refuse to recognise it as biryani without aloo ar deem). Still remains the best homemade biryani we’ve made! #HomeMade #TalesFromNW #MangiaBene
