Chicken marinated in yoghurt and rice scented with saffron, cardamom, cinnamon and cumin make this biryani full of flavour.
Lots of steps... but really good!!! The rice flavor is subtle, but it is supposed to be. This is not a jump-right-out-atcha-Mexican dish~!! Flavors like coriander, saffron, and the like are subtle and aromatic. Delicious!!! Very similiar to the Biryani rice that was cooked for us by some of our Middle Eastern friends! - 23 Feb 2019 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I really liked this recipe. I had to make some substitutions - that I would not do again. I didn't have fresh tomatoes, so I drained a can of diced. I wished I should have omitted the tomatoes because the flavor of the chicken was so lovely and the canned tomatoes was distracting. I thought I had Jasmine rice but only had long grain white rice. The Jasmine rice texture and flavor would have been much better. I substituted dried ground ginger for the fresh. I would do that again and the recipe didn't call for any salt and I did sprinkle the rice and the chicken with salt at the end. It was a hit with my husband and three kids age 11,14 and 16. - 17 Feb 2019 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
