This recipe proves that tasty biryani need not always involve hours of labor over a hot stove:
I skipped the fake chicken, the soya chunks and the carom seeds (did not have any of these on hand). I added two slit green chillis when sauteing the onions and cooked the biryani in an electric rice cooker. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. The end result was fragrant and a tasty change from regular biryani.
I will update this post when I try this recipe with real chicken.
