Hi friends today sharing Hyderabad Veg Dum Biriyani Recipe for SNC family. SNC means South V/S North Challenge which is a superb idea Of Divya Pramil a Fantastic Editor and Photographer of Foodie Blog world. To see her innovative and variety recipe please visit "You Too Can Cook - Indian Food Recipe". SNC is an event which is growing up within a little time period as there is a really nice way to learn recipe from each and every expert Foodie Friends. Every month one challenge is held for both of the team like South team member will serve one recipe for North team members and North team members will try and post this and in case of North team it is same or vice versa. Nice na? So as per challenge rule this month challenge host is Swasthi for North Team .Swasthi gave a challenge of making  Hyderabad Veg Dum Biriyani Recipe. Though it is my choice recipe I took the challenge and I am successful too. Thanks Swasthi and Divya for this nice recipe. On the other hand in favor of South team Kirti has given the challenge  to make Chana Dal Halwa.  This is also a nice challenge. I want to try this one too for someday.Thanks to Kirti also.
