Baby Corn Dum Biryani – simple and delicious!!

I am really excited to share this recipe with you guys. This was my first attempt in making Dum Biryani and it turned out awesome and hubby certified it as the best biryani he has ever had. I was literally flying in the air as soon as I heard his feedback. Appreciation gives so much joy, isn’t it? This was made with Baby corns and hence I christen it Baby Corn Dum Biryani.

I watch so many cookery shows to get inspiration and new ideas. Last week, it was a biryani special on one show and I tried this the next day following the technique to the T and it was a super hit. So, here it is for all you Biryani lovers there!!
