Meat Free Chicken Biryani

Biryani is a very famous rice-based baked dish made with Indian spices. The name derives from the Persian word 'beryā' which means roasted or fried.

For biryani, always use a long grain rice. Basmati rice, with its fine thin grains is the ideal variety to use.

Biryani also keeps well and can be served up even a few days later.
