Vegitable Dum Biryani

I am a regular viewer of "Chakle India" show in NDTV Good Times. Its a show that brings you India's rich cuisine to whet your appetite. Show is casted by chef, Aditya Bal and he travels to various parts of the country, eats the finest plates, and then tries out the recipes in his kitchen!

It's a show that aims to travel, eat and learn - and becomes your ultimate Indian Food Guide. He will visit the best restaurants, eat yummy street food, dine with the locals, and then put on his apron to recreate those magical recipes.
