Mint is indispensable to the traditional biriyani recipe. When more mint is added to the dish, you get mint/pudina biriyani! Biryani is already noted for its spiciness and wide flavor profile; the mint only serves to heighten and sharpen the flavors inside the biryani making for an intense dining experience.
