Easy Chicken Biryani

 Biryani at its best with something with nothing in lunch or dinner at home or every time we enjoy it like first time we are having till the last spoon. Yesterday night I planned to cook chicken curry and rice but suddenly two of my friend arrived, so I thought why not some chicken biryani for them. So just very quickly I made a nice Easy Chicken Biryani for dinner. And it’s really turned good.

Normally I used to make one side dish for biryani but last time I didn’t have time for this so just made some Raita and served with biryani. For any unplanned dinner you can surprise your guest with this easy Biryani.
