Welcome to the Gourmet Indian Series. Today we bring you Chicken Biryani.

Biryani although most closely associated with India cuisine really orginated from the Middle East. The spices used in the Middle Eastern version of the dish closely resemble the Indian version, although you can generally assume that the Indian version will be slightly hotter!

Method: 1. Boil the rice in 3 pts water with a small salt for 8 minutes, stirring once and keeping the water at a rolling boil. 2. Drain and reserve. Meanwhile, thinly slice the chicken breast. 3.
