Small potato biryani always remains close to my heart. Because it is the first recipe I learnt and became a hit among my family. When I got married, once I made this and everyone appreciated it. I used to follow a recipe from a cookbook, but now I am making my own version as the original version is too tedious! The only time consuming thing in this is to cook the small potatoes and peel the skin off and then frying it before using it in the recipe. But sure worth spending time as your family and yourself are gonna love this one :) And yes, this is my whole family favorite too!
Its pretty simple with only a curd rice and raita along with the small potato biryani. If you are concerned about protien, just add on any sprout salad or sundal with this and a complete meal is yours...Here is how to prepare I prepared the lunch.
