Chettinad Chicken Biryani

 How many of you mouth water when you hear the word Biryani?? Definitely I do.. one of the most tastiest food. a perfect one-pot meal. There are so many varieties of biryani. Starting from regional, religion, etc.  My alltime favorite is mutton biryani... i have few restaurants in chennai, where I prefer to eat biryani ,everytime I visit.

Chicken biryani is currently the more popular biryani, being easy on the stomach and also because of wider availability. It usually comes with a boiled egg too.
