Mint Lemon Chicken Biriyani

The mint lemon chicken biriyani:

Biriyani is the most preferred food for many. There are several versions of biriyani and in Tamil Nadu itself there are many signature recipes for biriyani like the thalapakatti chicken biriyani, ambur chicken biriyani, chetinad chicken biriyani, vaniyampatti chicken biriyani. Like all I love biriyani too and have a huge list of collections on my website itself.

In Tamilnadu, chicken biriyani is one pot meal where rice is cooked with masala and chicken. In other places, chicken is cooked with masala and layered with rice. I love the one pot meal version. The mint lemon biriyani is a similar one too.

Method of cooking mint lemon chicken:
Make a paste of mint + 1 cinnamon stick + 2 cloves + 1 green chilly + ginger garlic paste and fennel. Keep this green paste aside.
