ABOUT Doodh Biryani RECIPE

A less oily, less spicy, white color biryani. Used to cook in nawabs houses with secret recipe. A handful of people know that recipe. I tried to cook this with whatever i searched, studied and collected the relevant information from the internet and believe me it tasted really very good and a soft richness added that different taste from other biryanies. What we felt when we had this. We liked it too much.
