Egg Briyani

While going through my non vegetarian recipe index i came to know that i havent posted my recipe for egg briyani which i prepare quite often whenever i dont have meats or veggies, here is my favourite and delicious egg briyani from the kitchen, my egg briyani goes for hard boiled eggs and some scrambled eggs, usually many of us make egg briyani just with whole hard boiled eggs while i go for both boiled eggs and scrambled eggs, everyone at home love my version egg briyani..Just serve this hot egg briyani along with some onion raita, u guys will definitely fallen in love completely with this combo which tastes absolutely divine.
