Best Keto Paneer Biryani

A quick protein packed meal idea.

Biryani is a mixed riced dish spiced with flavorful herbs and spices and is served with a raita (yogurt mixture) on the side. This dish is especially popular throughout the Indian subcontinent, as well as among the diaspora from the region. Traditionally, this dish is made with basmati rice but here we have replaced the rice with "Cauli" Rice thus lowering the carb content quite dramatically. Do try this dish and be the judge on this delicacy.
