Thalassery Biryani

10 Aug 2011








Thalassery Biryani:



I saw the recipe of Thalassery Biryani in a popular  TV cookery show  last week. It is absolutely mouthwatering and I can’t wait to try it.  The traditional recipe is prepared with chicken and other simple Indian ingredients.


Exactly I tried out the same step by step instructional video recipe and it came out very well.  And this Biryani is very popular in Kerala Cuisine and got its name from the Keyi family of Thalassery..!

Try out this traditional  &  yummy recipe !

Dzoli said...

Yes I willa also like to know what saunf is?:)

Jay said...

saunf or fennel seeds or aniseed is a spice. It is available at all Indian stores. It is used to flavor dishes. It is a very efficient digestive and mouth freshener and is often eaten chewed as an after-mint.
giv a try..:)
