I really liked Uzma Jalaluddin’s debut novel and immediately added her follow up, Hana Khan Carries On, to my TBR list. It was a super cute friends to lovers story very reminiscent of You’ve Got Mail but replace bookstores with rival Halal restaurants.
As you can imagine, this book was full of delicious food. I wasn’t brave enough to try the Biryani Poutine that Hana’s family’s restaurant was named after, but I did make traditional biryani. I found a great recipe online that was super straight forward and had a ton of great notes on substitutions, where to find specific ingredients, and how to customize it to fit your own tastes.
