Black chick peas biryani

One pot meals are always welcome and  biryanis are always very welcome. Coming back from work and planning what to cook is always so troubling. Best are pulaos and biryanis. I have always loved it to make as well as well to eat. A simple side of raita and you are good to go

I make biryani with chick peas, black chick peas, green moong dal and what not :D well they have always tasted perfect and that is we finally want..... right???
