Chicken Biryani is a beautifully flavoured rice dish that is often layered with a spiced chicken/mutton/beef/vegetarian gravy and rice that is infused with whole spices. Traditionally, a chicken biryani involves a lot of steps including marinating the meat, frying the vegetables for layering, loads of coriander and mint leaves, fried eggs, saffron milk etc. My version is a simplified recipe that gives you those exquisite flavours.
Serve with some plain yoghurt and lemon pickle or kachumbari.
