ACHARI BIRYANI

 I am here today with Achari Biryani which has a spicy twist with added pickle flavoring. I have heard about Achari Pulao, but I wanted to try Biryani today and that too with Kohinoor Extra Long Basmati Rice which is grown and natured with the river water of Himalayas, is naturally aged for 24 months to impart the fluffy grains, the extra length & the characteristic basmati aroma. The recipe is actually flavored with pickle along with spices and masalas. So you can imagine how fiery and spicy the outcome would be. I have used mango pickle extract, but you can use any variety. The aromatic rice when cooked and mixed with pickle gives a unique flavor to the biryani.
