Obviously most of our sunday lunch will definitely goes for pulaos,briyanis or special one pot meals.Egg dum briyani was one of my DH's favourite, also its doesnt need any special side dish or any other gravy to accompany this super flavourful briyani as the eggs itself will definitely replace those side dishes or gravies, eventhough i served this briyani with my lil one's favourite carrot raita.
