Ambur Chicken Biriyani
Ambur Chicken Biriyani is an authentic and traditional recipe from Tamil Nadu which is a dum style. This biryani is totally different from traditional indian biryani recipes or hyderabadi biryani. It is a specialty of nawabs of arcot who first cooked and made this biryani recipe most popular in southern parts of India, Ambur in Tamil Nadu. What’s special about this biryani is that is is cooked on wood fires and a special variety of short grain rice called seeraga samba rice (jeera samba rice) is used. With tender pieces of meat on the bone, simple whole spices and the short grain rice-Seeraga Samba, this non-vegetarian recipe is an absolute winner. Serve it as main course at your parties or on a Sunday afternoon for lunch.
