Mughlai Chicken Biryani | Quick Chicken Biryani Recipe

This is a regal dish, Mughlai Chicken Biryani is fit for a king and a relish for many people. This recipe combines special ingredients in the Mughlai style of cooking – when you have a company, then it is a complete one-consonant.

Chicken Biryani is not only delicious food. A layer of rice with spicy chicken in the Mughal style layer is an opportunity. I prefer using chicken with bones for Mughlai chicken biryani. It tastes better when soaked in gravy and cooked along with the rice.
