Biryani credits its plenitude of variations and distinctive styles to different regions of the world. However, in a majority of biriyani, either chicken or mutton remains as the base ingredient, apart from the rice. But even the vegetarian biryani will make you go gaga over it! If you haven’t tried a green dot biryani yet or looking forward to trying a different form of it, tofu biryani is here to lend a helping hand.
