murgh biryani

Biryani was spread through out the Middle East and South Asia by Muslim travellers and merchants. It is a dish that is cooked for celebrations and is made from a mixture of spices, rice (basmati), meat and yoghurt layered in a container sealed with a flour dough and slow cooked on a coal fire. This is a simplified version that uses a cook top. For a variation use goat/lamb instead of chicken.

vegetarian version

Replace chicken with mixed veggies like cauliflower, peas and potatoes.
