Good to see some variations, never seen a Biryani version from Malaysia before.

Thanks for sharing. I really miss this type of biryani. For your curry powder recipe, do I have to grind the whole spices (fennel, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon) or use the whole?

For curry powder take all spices and grind to powder as a whole ie everything in the curry powder list together.
