Chicken biryani is my all time favorite recipe after chicken dum biryani as it does not include tomatoes in its making. This is also the second version of chicken biryani I learned to cook when i was a beginner.  I don’t make this style biryani often at home but if i do then tandoori chicken will surely be prepared as side accompany because Sunday lunch is always special.
