Spicy Chicken & Egg Biriyani

Chicken, rice and egg cooked together in a flavorful combination of spices such as cinnamon,cloves,cardamom,  mace, star anise and oniontomato based gravy. Spicy Chicken & Egg Biriyani is a complete meal by itself. If I have I ever have to impress someone with my cooking skills and be loved, then this is my go-to dish.

Spicy Chicken & Egg Biriyani has always been my favorite for many reasons. First of all it’s superbly high on the flavor side. Secondly, it’s a meal by itself and finally it’s worth spending time to make this biriyani. I know, I make it sound easy even though the cooking involves a lot of preparation and care. But your time and effort will pay you off in the form of a wonderful, flavorful biriyani.

Biriyani is traditionally eaten with raita, pickle and pappad (pappadam). Raita will help to mellow down the spiciness of biriyani and at the same time cleanse your palate as well.
