Chettinad style Mushroom Biryani | Mushroom Peas Biryani

I tried chettinad vegetable biryani a long time ago and i like the flavor very much. So i tried the same way with mushroom and it's even better than vegetable biryani. 
After that, i always prepare the mushroom biryani this way. The flavor from marathi moggu, maze and kalpasi is extraordinary and it makes biryani so tasty.  Here i added peas for light sweetness, but you can skip that and make it as plain Mushroom Biryani.Give it a try on this weekend and enjoy with your family.
