My husband is a craaaazzyyyyy BiriYani lover. So, I thought what could be more exciting than a biriyani treat to him on V day!!! To cook something special, what he loves, will be the perfect way to express my feelings to him on this perfect day. I researched a lot upon new ideas of biriyani, then my eyes got stuck on Chef Sanjay Thumma's 'ulta biriyani'- how beautiful it is!! I won't say that this is the authentic Arabian 'Maqlooba' because their cooking process and recipe are slightly different than ours. Anyway, I was searching for some new ideas and then found one. I was also impressed by its recipe, it's a one pot biriyani. You don't have to spend half of your day in kitchen making biriyani, the dish will take just an hour. This biriyani has soft, juicy chicken pieces, beautiful long grain rice and some mild flavours. Try this easy peasy upside down Chicken Biriyani in your kitchen and enjoy a perfect dinner with your (biriyani loving) partner ?? ...
