Traditional Biryani always has mutton cooked with rice. Nowadays, you also find stuffs like veg and chicken Biryani. Biryani is a full meal in itself.

Pulao is fried rice with nuts, saffron, spices and is not considered a full meal.

Pulav less spicy, less oily and basmati rice is mostly used with ghee.

Biryani mostly Glutinous rice mixed with vegetables or meat and it is comparitively more oily and spicy. :-P

Biryani can consist of Mutton, Chicken or Fish cooked over slow fire with a lot of spices including the BAY LEAF but not pulav. Pulav consists of mixed vegetables thrown in with a little quantity of spices.

In Pulao, the 'meat and rice are stirred' before cooking. For Biryani, meat and rice are clustered (layered) during cooking.
