Biryani is a rice dish, that is cooked either with chicken or meat. It can be made in various ways. When I first started making Biryani on the stove, my biggest problem was when I added the rice, the water would not get absorbed and my rice would get mushy. Making it in the microwave, can be a bit tedious, but definitely a good way for beginners to learn how to make biryani. Hope you enjoy my chicken biryani!!
