Chicken and Rice Biryani

My husband's mother taught me this recipe, an authentic Hyderabadi-style biryani that is a trademark of home-cooking in south India. The chicken, spices and rice all cook in the same frying pan.

I made this for my family and I, and we loved it. Had to add some more salt and garlic for extra taste but in the end it was very tasty. I didnt feel like making raita so I just topped it with some plain yougurt... yummy!

Excellent and easy to make. To flavor it a little add ginger to onions while frying.

This is by far the best biryani recipe I have ever tried. The only change I made was to add a pinch of safron as it looked a bit pale.

Curry leaves and curry spice (powder) are not the same thing. Curry leaves (Murraya koenigii) are also called Kari leaves and can be found at Indian/Asian grocery stores and have a lime smell to them. The best substitutes are bay leaves OR basil OR kaffir lime leaves (may be available at a Southeast Asian markets).

When I read the recipe I was so excited to try it. Now I am just disappointed and have a big bowl of leftovers that may end up going to waste. Not a recipe that I will try again - way too bland.

This was very good. The flavors were subtle but distinctive even without the curry leaves. I halved the recipe and used one large chicken breast, which shortened the cooking time. It goes well with "Indian Dal with Spinach" also from this site.

I added a few extra spices: cardamom, turmeric, hing (asafetida) and left out the garlic. Also, I'm a vegetarian so I added chicken substitute, green peas, cauliflower and cashews. It's likely that my version is regionally confused but it's tasty.

This is more of a pulav with absolutely no spices incorporated so probably RK you might need to go back and ckeck because this is definately not hyderabadi biryani from indian standards
