@Hari Ghotra this will sound really sad, but I am so glad I stumbled across this app!! I used to be a sous chef in gastropubs and classic french places, but I’ve always wanted to learn how to cook eastern cuisine, especially Indian. I feel it is my duty as a Brit to know how to cook our nations favourite!! 😆. Thank you for inspiring me and helping me learn the proper way to use all these wonderful aromats!! Xxx

Hi Hari, can this biryani be assembled on Friday and kept in the fridge to be cooked in the oven on Saturday?
