Rajma biryani recipe
Last week I couldn’t make biryani recipes on Sunday as I was busy in Onam Sadya preparation.This Sunday I cooked Rajma biryani in an easy way following this recipe.I guess many of you make Rajma pulao/Rajma rice.This recipe is also very similar to that but its with slight variations in masala.I have already shared mixed pulses biryani using Chana,rajma etc.But today’s Rajma biryani recipe is simple to make compared to pulses biryani.Its an ideal lunch box recipe for kids & adults as well.Do give a try.Lets see how to prepare Rajma biryani in pressure cooker.Check out my other biryani recipes in this series here.
