Burhani – Spicy yogurt Drink

A biriyani is incomplete in my household if it is not accompanied by Burhani. Traditionally Burhani is a wedding drink served along with Biriyani in mushlim community and it is basically a spicy lassi. Extremely easy to make, you can make it in a ziffy, just gather the ingredients and whiz through your mixer grinder, and a refreshing drink is done in no time.
