If there is one dish that Indians simply adore, it has to be biryani. In this one-pot delight, a mixture of aromatic rice is paired with meat, vegetables, spices and so much more. Food aggregator applications such as Swiggy and Zomato even reported that biryani was the most-ordered item in the year 2022. Biryani fans would argue that the traditional biryani recipe contains meat, and thus 'vegetable biryani' or 'vegetarian biryani' is not a thing at all. However, one customer at a restaurant in Indore was left shocked after he found bones in his vegetable biryani order. The customer, Akash Dubey, then complained that he had not been served vegetarian food at all.
