Dum Biryani Prepared From The Magic Of Slow Cooking

The well known cooking technique – Dum Pukht, that is cooking the dish with steam until it matures, is said to be an innovation of the Nawab of Awadh. Being on fire – sealed with dough though it takes hours and hours to prepare, but the aroma keeps everyone waiting to relish the flavors of the dish.

Here’s a recipe of one of the most famous dish – Dum Biryani, which has evolved from the lands of Mughals.
