Spicy Prawn Biryani

UK weather getting better again.Love the breeze-sunny spell.Its makes everything bright.Why I'm so damn  lazy nowadays to up-date my little baby blog?Actually,there is  a special things is restricted me to do so.
You know guys my little cheeky going to be TWO in early of this June. So I'm being hectic planning  his party menu and getting everything ready for his big day to be a perfection and the other reason is I clicked myself to complete  one of my resolution.This are the reason makes me absent  from blogging.

Although,I spare  time today to share a simple yet too delicious spicy prawn biryani. Biryani is always comes first as our favorite one pot comfort dish.Chicken or mutton are mostly I used for briyani.Therefore mutton base briyani is very famous between  entire family-s of mine.But sometime we do end up makes with seafood.The taste too different and so scrumptious if you serve with few drops of lemon or lime juice on top it before you indulge yourself along with chilled raita.yummy
