Bombay Quinoa Biryani

Shan foods


Serves 4-6 15 mins preparation  |  30 mins cooking

Being in Goa has got me all excited about working with seafood.  This Bombay Quinoa biryani served with charred lemon and crispy skin snapper recipe is an absolute winner, it’s even more special when teaming it with quinoa instead of rice.  Check out the recipe on and what’s even more exciting is #ShanFoods is running a special promotion, buy 3 spice mixes and get 1 free!  (available at your local Desi Store)!

Please see my recipe below using Shan Foods.  It makes cooking super easy. #Shan #TasteHappiness
