The best Beef Biryani recipe that I have ever made! I never could have imagined that a Biryani could be really made very tasty but this recipe really changed my mind.

  • ayman, Loralai



Excellent recipe, but a little modification, Add half teaspoon of Nutmeg, and one star Anise makes the flavour burst in your mouth. This was my first time making Pakistani food and it was excellent. I cut the heat back on purpose but next time I believe I will make it as is. Thank you for posting this recipe it was wonderful.

I played around with the spices to make beef biryani till it was to our taste. The other changes I made were to use fresh mint, and canned tomatoes; I used turmeric to colour the rice yellow.
