What is the one thing that all Pakistanis would unanimously agree on? Their love for Biryani. It wouldn’t be wrong to call Biryani the national dish of Pakistani households. There is nothing that beats the feeling of having Biryani at any part of the day.
Biryani is rich, packed full of spices, generous with flavors, and unbelievably tasty. Occasional feasts and restaurant menus are incomplete without it. Now there’s a hiccup, the condiments (Kali Mirch, Long, Choti Ilachi, Bari Ilachi, Aalo Bukhara etc.) used in the dish, that interrupts the joy of enjoying Biryani.
So, what’s the solution? Try our scrumptious ‘STUDENT BIRYANI’ without any condiment distraction.
