Fantastic recipe. Biriyani came out very well with the fragrance and taste. For people who are scared of spices - reduce the amount of green chillies. Highly recommended for all.

This is the best ever made biriani by me.My husband liked it a lot with the only trouble that i had to make it repeatedly for two days:-) he liked it very much and thanks a lot for the fantastic recipe though I made slight variations to the cooking method by adding a bit of bir masala to the rice and frying it..
