Chicken Biryani

Chicken Biryani is a flavorful rice dish made with fragrant Basmati rice. I prepared this biryani a tons of times, the recipe is perfect and has never failed me. Once you try this step-by-step version, you will be surprised how easy it is. [ You can also dum (steam) the biryani in rice cooker, replace the last step in cooker]

It’s fantastic with a cucumber raita , cooling off the heat while adding a fresh zing that brightens all the spices in the dish.
