Ambur veg biriyani recipe in Tamil - சீரக சம்பா
Ambur veg biriyani this is a vegetarian version of the famous biryani from Ambur. Ambur is a town in the Vellore district of Tamil Nadu and its biryani is very famous. I have used seeraga samba rice for making this biriyani, If possible use seeraga samba rice to make Ambur biryani. It brings out the real flavor. If you do not have seeraga samba rice, then use any medium or short grained rice but do not use basmati rice. Basmati rice won’t work well in the recipe. Seraga samba rice has its own flavor and while cooking with masalas and other Indian spices it tastes really good.
