A unusual combo in biryani, but really works. I had a head of cabbage lying in my fridge, and i wanted to use that up in a recipe. So decided to try a biryani with it, i also added some cooked soya chunks to it and final dish came out really good. You can check out all my veg biryani recipe here, i have quite a few collection..
