72Min
Medium
Whether, it is a Sunday lunch with family or a weekend party with friends, you can rarely go wrong with a Chicken Biryani! While the cooking process can be slightly lengthy, the simplicity makes up for it. Serve it with some raita or a salad, because you don’t really need too many things on the table when you have a big handi of aromatic, flavourful biryani! Just make sure you retain chicken on the bone for maximum flavour. Just before removing the dish from the flame, top it with roundels of fried potatoes and slices of boiled egg for a Kolkata-style Biryani experience! Keep the pan covered, to let the flavours soak in completely.
