Chicken Biryani : ( Muslim’s Style )

Biryani  is truly the most divine dish of all the non-veg recipes. Muslims are expert in making lipsmacking biryani. 

The Muslim Chicken Biryani tastes superb, fragrant, non-greasy yet  finger-licking good with delicious flavor.  If you are a Non Vegetarian,  you should have tasted this in any Muslim functions.

I never ever miss a chance to attend a Muslim wedding and enjoy this authentic taste..:)

I got this recipe last week, from one of my Muslim friend and I finally got my hands on the most flavorful Biryani..!

Check out  this easy recipe & enjoy the luxurious taste ..!
