This is a delicious rice dish which is often reserved for very special occasions such as weddings, parties, or holidays. It has a lengthy preparation, but the work is definitely worth it. For biryani, always use long grain rice. Basmati rice with its thin, fine grains is the ideal variety to use.
Biryani is a bit of a project and is time consuming, but I have never been disappointed with the results. Since it is such a festive dish, I usually make it for dinner parties. It is a huge hit.
This is a sort of lazy man’s biryani. Basically you cook the kheema masala first and then layer and cook the rice on top. It is very easy and it always a hit. Serve with raita.
Scented with cinnamon and elaichi, here's a delicious alternative to regular pulao. The shrimp give the rice a nice pink colour and great flavour. And it's ready in 20 mins!

Ilish Pulao is a famous rice dish, often cooked in special occasions. It is delicious by itself, but can be also eaten with achar (pickles), begun (eggplant) or potol (pointed gourd) bhaji. I personally like to have Ilish Pulao by sprinkling some lemon extract on the rice before I eat :)
Kashmiri pulao as the name suggests originated in Kashmir, Pakistan. However, this recipe is widely used in the Bangladesh as the country was once part of Pakistan. It is interesting that even though geographical borders have been created after partition, the cultural and historical ties of Bangladesh and Pakistan still remains weaved in the present. This dish is cooked on special occasions, and is really easy to make. It can be served as a main dish with any sort of curry.
