    Yes of course. Not only mine, but it's the favorite dish of my wife and daughter too. Besides this, in my opinion, it is one of the most delicious and most readily available dishes in Pakistan, especially in Karachi.

    No, it is flavored yogurt/curd (which is called 'Raita' in local language - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raita) Popular flavored yogurt eaten with Biryani are mint flavored and black pepper flavored. Flavored yogurt is usually used to enhance the taste of Biryani and somewhat to compensate the dry aspect of the dish.

    Some people use sauces (locally called 'Chutni' - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chutney) with Biryani but it is not a general trend because Biryani itself is a spicy dish.
    Feel hungry ^_^
