Today I'm featuring two recipes, the Vegetarian Biryani and Tomato Chutney which recipe I posted just before this. I'm not sure whats gotten over me this week going healthy all of a sudden but anyways it can still be delicious no doubt.

While preparing these two dishes my kitchen was like an aromatic musical show starring all the herbs and spices. At the end I was kinda sad to have finished cooking but so hungry that I can't wait to dig in. The Tomato Chutney I prepared is a little thick which is the way I like it but you can add more water to your liking.
