Sweetcorn Biryani

I was going through my fridge.. thinking of what to cook for dinner. Living in Glasgow.. don’t have too many options I can choose from when it comes to vegetarian. Found some sweetcorn.. thought why not make Biryani.. had a craving for Biryani before I had started my hunt in the fridge.. :))

But please do keep in mind.. I did not make the biryani masala at home.. it is store bought.. you need to have the biryani masala ready with you for this recipe…
