Chicken Biryani Recipe – ചിക്കന്‍ ബിരിയാണി – Using Eastern Chicken Biryani Masala

Chicken Biryani Recipe

Chicken Biryani Recipe

Chicken Biryani is very important for festival occasions in Kerala. Different styles like Kozhikodan Biriyani, Malabar Biriyani, Thalashery style Biriyani, Kayees Biriyani are famous in Central Kerala especially in Cochin. Ghee rice is prepared separately and layered with the chicken masala and allowed to cook in low flame. Chicken Biryani, though born in the kitchens of Persia, has grown into a national favourite. Chicken biriyani may be served with dahi chutney or Raita.

A fragrant mix of spices that combine to make a delicious Biriyani. Just a spoonful blends well into the masala imparting its flavours to the rice. An aromatic mix of spices used specially in making chicken biriyani ground and specially packed to retain the aroma. This is tasty flavour of spice mix for exortic biriyani.

Chicken is one of the highest protein suppliers normally found in people’s diets. This is not only a very good source of protein, but it is also a very good source of vitamins and minerals.

For masala, I am using Eastern Chicken Biryani Masala.

Try out this yummy Biriyani at your home.
