Your biryani has too much onions. Onions should be used but in moderation! The onions are more than the rice!!

Somehow I can’t find a ginger garlic paste here. Can I make this paste homemade? And if yes, could you tell me please how? – Thanks a lot. I really enjoy your recipes and have also cooked some of them 🙂 <3
