how to make Mushroom Biryani

Dont underestimate mushrooms because of it's very usual colour; white. As you must have heard from experts that we should consume more colourful fruits and vegetables to keep ourselves healthy. On the contrary, mushrooms are loaded with nutrients and lots of health benefitswhich you will be amazed to know.




We started eating mushrooms in abundance as a replacement to chicken, as chicken was'nt so safe to consume during the flu time. And we ended up loving it, especially my hubby, who later preferred mushrooms than chicken. And so, mushroom biryani became substitute for sunday's chicken biryani.

So, here I would like to share how I prepare mushroom biryani. This is so simple yet delicious. Do try and let me know how it turned out for you.
