Biryani is not just a culinary masterpiece of spices, rice, and meat; it embodies the delicious dreams of Indian food enthusiasts. Karisma Kapoor recently triggered our biryani cravings with her Instagram Stories. In the picture, we could spot an earthen pot full of chicken biryani. Beside it, Karisma’s plate showcased the perfect setup – a serving of the flavorful rice dish, a petite matka filled with cooling raita, and two little bowls, one housing zesty green chutney, and the other had slices of crunchy onions in it. The Bollywood star enjoyed this feast in the heart of Delhi, sharing the culinary adventure with a friend named Ritakshi. In her caption, Karisma wrote, “Baatein or biryani [conversations and biryani]. Always the best with Ritakshi,” accompanied by an orange heart emoji.
