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..:)

    1. Glad you enjoyed the recipe,Rupa. Keep trying the recipes.

  35. If you add some potato with the chicken marinate and combine with rice (add some more salt as potatoe absorbs salt well) it tastes so goood 👍😍

  36. I think perhaps you need to rename this to Biryani. JUST...Biryani. A lot of other people make this dish that are not muslims sooo...there you go.

    1. okey..but this recipe is for those who love the unique taste of muslim wedding style biryani.

  37. It needs a small change here, if u half cook the rice separate and mix it with masala and the chicken and let it steam cook slowly till it is completely cooked and don't cook the biryani in pressure cooker.if u cook it in copper vessels it is more tasty try once u will love it

    1. Thanks for the tips. Will let u know after trying next time.

  38. Itz my dada's signature... Soo experienced 👍
    I use to cook and keep rice separately adding bit of milk instead of water so that it tastes well softy lofty ☺️...
    Then ; mix potatoes,masalas,extra chillie powder,some fried onions,2 yoghurt/some curd for 1kg required beef**
    And marinate for about 15mntx or less no issues**
    Then ... Heat your pressure cooker ghee/butter oil let some dry babes turn golden brown 👈 Then, add the 👆 Marinated beef dish to it and little by little add cooked rice toper and toper of the curry which you have put in basement🤔👇👇

    Next;some food colourings some ghee or butter for melting and softness fo d rice with ,garnishing items like corianders and wageraaz😊

    Cook it for 45mnts if ts cow meat
    For 30mnt for goat meat
    And 15-20mnt for chicken
    For shrimps just 5 mints!!
    Final touch:- when you turn off it on time make the air move out
    Then...take a piece of burning charcoal put it in a dish or small vessel type and pour some ghee 👈 Place it in the middle of the biryani rice and close the pressure cooker lid tight***
    Let the smoke stay in sealed**

    Removing the lid while lunch time or any time in front of people of fam ir frnds or hubby or whomever!!
    Gosh.....!! 😍😍😍 the smell comes out << its a secret tric but just and essence of smell for our special Muslim Biryani**
    Guys maintaind secret let nly our website know it 😆
    Heheh😊 Hope it tastes good to u all...just shared my pa's signature☺️😍✊luv yuh pa (nizamdeen)(srilanka)(hatton-dunbar)
