Can we eat raita with prawns biryani?
A simple salan or gravy, a raita or a bowl of fresh veggie salad goes well with this biryani. To keep the recipe simple, I have not used saffron, milk or even fried onions. So feel free to use all of them if you like the flavors of saffron & fried onions. I have made this prawn biryani using fresh black tiger prawns.
