Biryani Gosht

Biryani Gosht

The least stressful way to make this is to take 2 days--but that is only because of the slow cooking required for the meat. Please do not get intimidated--read through the recipe and if you feel you have time (i.e., you get up earlier than me!) then make the recipe in one day.
