Chicken 65 Biriyani/Chicken 65 Biryani

Have you ever tried combining chicken 65 and biryani together as one pot meal?, if not then you are missing something. This chicken 65 biriyani makes an excellent meal for a party get together, family get together or else simply for a special sunday lunch. Actually i love to serve biriyani cooked with chicken,mutton or prawn along with chicken 65 and raita but imagine how delicious this biriyani will be if both chicken 65 and rice gets cooked in a spiced aromatic paste. My family members are great fans of chicken 65 and briyani obviously this one pot meal was their favourite since ever i served them for their sunday lunch.Though this briyani goes for both frying chicken pieces and cooking kuska like biriyani, dont forget to give a try to this interesting and delicious one pot meal. If you are a vegetarian, do try this biryani with Paneer 65 or else with vegetables like baby potatoes or cauliflower, the choice is yours.

Though this biryani sounds very long when its coming to the cooking process, its really worth to try. Once chicken pieces gets deepfried in oil, half of the fried chicken pieces gets cooked in spiced paste along with rice and the remaining chicken 65 are added finally once the biryani gets completely cooked and ready to serve. Needless to say, while enjoying this one pot meal you will definitely see the difference between the cooked deep fried chicken along with rice and the crispy juicy chicken pieces added to this biriyani before serving, sounds interesting rite. You doesnt need any reason for trying this flavourful biriyani on a special day. Give a try and do let me know. Am running my second week of blogging marathon with rice dishes as this week's theme.
