I do have someone in my home who wants to eat my handmade 'chicken biriyani' once in a week. I make this biriyani not too much rich and spicy but with some mild flavours and tendor chicken pieces. I do not like any side with my biriyani because I only want to enjoy those flavours of biriyani. For him I make 'korma'/'chaaap'/'kosha' etc. Enjoy your weekend with a full plate of homemade warm Biriyani.
