Over the years, Biryani has lent itself to countless variations and versions across various regions of India. There's the royal Awadhi biryani from Lucknow, tantalising fish biryani from Malabar and the lip-smacking chicken biryani from Hyderabad. Even our Bollywood celebrities love Biryani and we have proof of the same.
