Food 24, one of the country's leading food websites, had shared a quick recipe of what they claimed to be chicken biryani. However, people did not like the recipe of the royal dish. Made with chicken pieces and brown lentils (whole masoor dal)
“In celebration of Heritage month we’ve whipped up an easy-to-make, scrumptious biryani that’ll have you coming back for seconds,” the website wrote while posting the recipe.
The recipe got a lot of attention, but certainly they were not praises:

The original biryani is ashamed to see what you have done. Biryani in a le creuset pot, I knew it was downhill from there.— Gems and Pearls (@GemsandPearls) October 1, 2020

This is terrible. Everything with rice and meat is NOT biryani.— Arif Ayyub (@arifayyub) October 1, 2020
We call this “ Masoor Pulao” and instead of chicken boneless we use mince of any meat be it beef or chicken or Mutton. Biryani can have many types depends on the culture but no biryani has lentils in it.— ~S (@ssabasays) October 1, 2020

It's not Biryani. Stop playing eith our emotions. I have not seen anything more scary.— Waqas Habib Rana (@waqas464) September 30, 2020
As they continued to criticize the recipe, the website apologized said they have removed the original recipes from all platforms
