Chicken 65 biryani recipe with step by step pictures.
Chicken 65 biryani was on my to do list for quite sometime. Finally i made it few weeks back and it was super hit. I couldn’t resist it so i wanted to share it on my blog.
Making chicken 65 biryani can be little different from the other biryani because since we are frying the chicken separately instead of cooking it with the rice. The rice may not have the same flavour. So i created this recipe. I added half the chicken in the rice and other half i fried and used as garnish. The rice was so flavourful because of the chicken which we added.
