Chennai Chicken Biriyani

Biriyani is most popular in Muslims Marriage. In our Marriage we  prepare Mutton Biriyani, ennai kaththirikaai, thayir pachadi, mittaa khana.This my family favourite Traditonal biriyani.

We are making very simple and yummy biriyani.I like making biriyani. Some of  the Biriyani's like Hyderabad , Mughal,Ambur biriyani,thalappakaddu biriyani,vegetable Biriyani, chettinad’s are different. Some of them are more spicy too.
