About Matar Keema cooked in Biryani Gravy Recipe

The biryani gravy aka akhani can be used in different ways. At my mils place, we prepare biryani akhani and have it with parathas or rice rotis. Typically, in few households it’s a ritual to make this gravy for Eid Breakfast. The gravy is mild yet flavourful and the simplicity lies in it's ingredients.
