    So good! Swapped out the can of plum tomatoes for a smaller can of tomato sauce and it was perfect! Will definitely make again.

    It turned out awesomely! Substituted the. Milk for coconut milk and added just a little bit more chilli for good measure! Also I ended by putting the biryani in the oven for the last 10min simmer. Delicious!
