There are so many biryani recipes but this one stays my favorite always because of its simplicity and subtle flavors. This is my Moms recipe. One pot recipe followed by many of families in kongunad regions.

OPOS Chicken Biryani

I remember when i was in my school days, Every Sunday does not go good without this biryani. Amma starts cooking at 12 PM and by 1 or 1.30PM we use to be waiting for it eagerly. Smell while cooking the biryani is simply awesome and induces hunger. Needs no side dish actually. Just the Biryani and Onion raita will go good!
