 First and foremost I would like to thank all the awesome people who followed me over at blogger and facebook.Thanks a Bunch to all my darlings and welcome to My Cookingdom.

A perfect comforting Soya Biryani from my kitchen to your plate.It's our all time favorite and  heavenly tasteful yet very simple to prepare.

Serve this delicious Soya Chunk Biryani with  yogurt, onion raita,vegetable stew or papad.Personally, I like to serve the soya biryani with spicy potato masala along with raita and papad.
