  1. Acha 2 points:
    1. Tomato puree curd – ain’t that too much acid..

    2. Would suggest using grated nutmeg. Essence of Biryani.

  2. The curd is just added within the layers just to give a soothing taste to the hot biryani. The nutmeg is a good suggestion, would definitely try it out the next time.
