Gosht Seviyan Biryani is a pulao made with mutton and seviyan (Vermicelli) cooked in spices. Biryani is generally made with rice, but this biryani is made with seviyan instead of rice.

The tender and succulent mutton pieces, the soft seviyan and aromatic spices combine beautifully to give this biryani a unique texture and incomparable flavour.

Gosht Seviyan Biryani is deliciously addictive.
