Most of our sunday lunch goes for briyanis, this weekend H was bit busy with some stuffs and he didnt stayed with us for the lunch. Obviously, i packed him this quick vegan briyani to carry along with him and went for an easy breezy tomato peas briyani.Serve it simply with hard boiled eggs or fried fryums,am damn sure you will definitely have a filling lunch or dinner..You can easily carry this delicious pulao in your lunch box.Sending to Priya's event Healthy Diet - Healthy Lunch Box guest hosted by Sowmya.
