Sharing is caring!

Egg Biryani is an easy delicious one pot meal you can make when your kids want some delicious biryani for the weekend. This recipe is an easy one for anybody to make at home.

During this lockdown when meat shops were closed, we ended up making Biryanis with Eggs, Paneer and Vegetable. On one such occasion, my kids wanted to take a video of the biryani that was getting done.

Sundays feature Non Veg Biryanis and we vegetarians take time to enjoy simple meals. So when we couldn’t make any special meals for the kids, we had to resort making different versions of biryani, that they can enjoy.

This time it was Konda’s turn to take the video and she edited the video for me. Everybody enjoyed and loved the biryani. This Egg Biryani recipe is different from the one I have already shared.

I made this biryani in a nonstick pan while it can be easily prepared in pressure cooker or rice cooker too. This is the last one in the Biryani series.

I have uploaded the video to my Youtube Channel.
