[…] Tomato Biryani […]
This looks absolutely amazing. I want a big bowl of this right now!!!
One question – do you think this recipe would work with brown rice (maybe brown basmati?). My husband does not eat white rice. Also, what is the spice level? I would probably make this for the whole family. My little one is fine with heavy spices but not if they are hot. Thanks!!!
Oh yes, you can use brown rice instead of white:-)
I have some Biryani spice which I was just wondering on how to use it. Guess I found my answer here! Thank you 🙂
Do try it:-)
Nice combination! I like coconut milk in rice and this is such a lovely twist. Will try!
I totally like all kinds of rice dishes. This recipe sounds so great, I might try it. Thanks for sharing.
WOW!! flavourful biryani!!
Tomato biriyani looks delicious very nice.
Yum! I love this sort of dish!
I love rice and when I am not hungry , rice can always awaken my appetite. So I will try out it!! For sure. Francesca
Such a flavorful rice this will be.
Super, Vidya. Never thought of this combination. Your variety of rice dishes also is so extensive. I really want to try all of them!
Thanks Apsara:-) feels good to hear such comments from you
Biriyani is our family favourite.. have to make it at least once a week if not more..
Lots of flavors…yummy☺
This I am sure I can make too..maybe this weekend I will..
Thank you yummmyyyy
This recipe sounds very good. I like the combination of tomato,onion and coconut milk. I can imagine the taste.
I have found that adding coconut milk to Biryani or Pulav elevates it to another level! Superb recipe. I am sure the coconut milk offsets the tangy taste of tomato.
Yes Aruna coconut milk gave nice flavor to the tomato rice:-)
What a nice dish, thanks!
Lovely favour rice…looks inviting 🙂
