  1. Dear Dassana,

    Please accept my heartfelt appreciation of your work. Each one of them is a hit…
    I wish you and the team very best in all your endeavors !!

    I have a suggestion /request for you. Would it possible to provide a provision for us to make a note of a certain changes we would make according to our taste preference ? Like for example I might have used 1 green chilli in place of two or 1/2 tsp less of chilli powder etc.
    This helps me to repeat the taste next time i make the recipe. Thanks.

    • thank you asha. also thanks for the suggestion. by providing a provision means, that the reader can edit or make changes and keep a note of it? if yes than currently with the program i am using it is not possible to make a note of the changes from the reader’s end. let me know if this is what you meant.

  2. Surviving based on your recipes..thank you so much..
    For helping out all bachelors away from their mother…

    • thanks a lot 🙏

  3. Hi Dassana,
    I want to try your Hyderabadi veg biryani.
    Can I replace curds with something vegan?
    Would it still taste the same?
    I read somewhere that cashew paste can be used instead of curds.
    Can you tell me how many cashews and how to make a paste out of it?
    Thanks .

    • sushma, you can use thick coconut milk or cashew paste or cashew curd as substitutes for curd. just add a bit of lemon juice to get that slightly sour taste in the biryani that comes from curd. for cashew paste, soak 1/2 cup cashews hot water for 30 mins. then grind with some water to get a paste. for cashew curd, you can check this link –
