Lazeez Asian Cuisine Butter Chicken

Leftover Biryani Chinese Fried Rice

Note to self: I ended up making waaay too much biryani for 2 people. At this rate I think we would be eating it breakfast, lunch and dinner for a week so I wanted to find creative ways to repurpose it so we wouldn’t be eating the same thing every day. I thought about how…
