Our tips:

Add a touch of royalty to your biryani by infusing a pinch of saffron with a little lukewarm milk & add to the rice layer of biryani (instead of water) before cooking in the oven.

Leave to marinate for longer  (1-2 hours) to give a more succulent aromatic taste.

Why not add some crispy fried onions ontop before serving.
