Ambur Biryani ~ Sunday Special ..!

Jayanthy Kumaran | 04:37 | |




Ambur Chicken Biryani:

Ambur Biryani is a famous & special type of Biryani of South India which emerged during the Nawab of Arcot’s regime. This one is a dum biryani & I enjoyed cooking it. 

It has an unique appetizing taste and the rich spicy taste lies in the preparation method & mixing of the ingredients at right proportion. 

Here is the secret recipe for you, try it out & delight your family with yet another interesting biryani..:)

  • Basmati Rice                             - 2 cups
