Takkali Biryani (Tomato Biryani)

One more biryani recipe from Tamil Nadu Which I frequently hear from my friends. I don't use tomato in biryani because I think if we use tomato in biryani that will turn mushy and with more moisture. But when I tried this we just like this with that fennal flavor. This is my final recipe for this week under Biryanis theme.
