Recently, a Pakistani man shared a photo of the dish, which many dubbed ‘blasphemous’ online showing a big bowl of the rice dish topped with a few fresh strawberries. The image showed what seemed to be a regular biryani with meat but garnished with the whole fruits.
“We made “Strawbiryani” at home today and I am curious to know what desi Twitter has to say about it,” Twitter user Saad from Islamabad wrote on the micro-blogging site sharing the dish.
Many biryani lovers were disappointed but hoped that it was only meant to be a garnish and not used inside the actual dish. While many slammed him for “disrespecting” the dish, other reacted with hilarious memes. However, many said he didn’t use it inside the biryani per say and alleged that he only posted for Twitter fame.

Put some ketchup on it, freeze in the freezer and then smash it on your head

So i see some sort of protein (chicken maybe?) so that's okay it's still a biryani. And as far as the fruit goes it won't matter much,, it'll be like kashmiri pulav. I'm glad you added a fruit, it looks like a balanced diet now ☺️
