Chicken Biryani Recipe

This classic chicken biryani recipe originated amongst the Muslims on the Indian subcontinent. The world has seen many food crazes come and go and they all tend to be popular while they last, like the keto diet. For some reason, we always return to the tried and tested old favourites like this chicken biryani recipe.


This chicken dish is also known by other names like Biriyani, Biriani, Beriani, and Breyani, to name but a few. Many cultures have adapted this recipe and claimed it for themselves. It is a popular recipe and people enjoy it from all over the world.


The chicken biryani recipe ingredients are very similar to the ingredients found in any chicken curry recipe, but the main difference lies in the preparation, where the rice is included and also spiced with the curry and other spices.


The hotness of the recipe depends on the spices you use and the level of curry powder you use, either hot or mild. Chicken biryani is spicy, and most people prefer to thot version, but it is not to everyone's taste.


We are happy you are here and hope you will enjoy our chicken biryani recipe as much as we did. If you tried this recipe, please let us know, or even better, take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom
