Wheat Rava Biriyani

This summer I am in Hyderabad, at my daughter’s place. When you think of Hyderabad the first thing that comes to your mind is the Hyderabadi Biryani, very rich and very delicious.

Not only in Hyderabad , but also across India people are great fans of this dish called Biriyani. Biriyani is most often made during festival time or during wedding reception. Biryani is made using basmathi rice and this dish has lots of vegetables and oil.

Wheat Rava Biryani is specially for those who are diabetic and those who are on diet. This biryani has very less oil and contains lots of vegetables. It is as tasty as any other Biryani.

Here is the recipe for you:
