If you are wondering why the word “finally” is there in title, here it goes. There are 2 reasons. First, if I make a list of recipe requests I get from readers of MariasMenu, Chicken Biriyani easily tops that list. You might ask, what took me so long to post the recipe then. Usually, whenever I get a request for Chicken Biriyani recipe, I reply to them with my mutton biriyani link.
Because that's originally a chicken biriyani recipe and I happened to make it with mutton sometimes. We were & are perfectly happy with the recipe & I never wanted to try another one.
So I never bothered collecting or going through any other biriyani recipe. Since the number of mails & comments asking for a chicken biriyani kept on increasing, I gave a second thought and “Finally” I'm posting a Chicken Biriyani recipe :)
Second, this is my 200th post. Let me make something clear here, I dont think this is my 200th food post, because there are some non foodie posts also. However WordPress is telling me that I have 199 posts now and when this post gets published it will be 200. Now, I'm a peace loving person and didnt want to disagree with WordPress ;). I thought ok, lets go ahead with 200! I know…it took me almost 4 years to hit double century, the run rate is really sad :(. When I've seen other bloggers celebrating 200 or 300, I used to wonder “mera number kab ayega”? Here it is “Finally” :) Thank you for helping me to hit the double century, I owe it to YOU big time :)
About the recipe… when I made this biriyani, I had a feeling that I was standing in the mix n match section of Shoppers Stop :). Because I've picked the recipe from here and there. This recipe wont fit under the “authentic” or “traditional” Biriyani recipe. In this, I have fried the chicken pieces and I have also used chilly & coriander powder etc which I normally dont use in the biriyani. I've seen some of my friends doing it, so I thought I will try it. I've got the masala part from some other friends, so its a total mix n match stuff. I've made it 2-3 times and it came out well every time. Hope you will also like it.
