Nasi Biryani is a typical Middle Eastern dish that is popular in many countries. This spicy rice is usually served with lamb or chicken curry.
Nasi Biryani is often stained with red and yellow spots. You can use food colour but turmeric powder works best in making this authentic biryani. You can easily do this by mixing turmeric with hot water and sprinkling it over the rice to give it a spotted appearance.
In this biryani recipe, rose water or kewra is a must to add at the end to add as it gives more flavour to the rice.
