Fried chicken biryani is one of the famous and delicious dishes from Andhra cuisine. I have tried this earlier but was never satisfied with the end product. Finally, when I tried it last Sunday it turned out amazing. Especially in this pandemic, we can enjoy restaurant-style biryani at home itself. For any recipe, homemade spice powders bring unique flavors to the dish. In this recipe, I used freshly grounded spices to enhance the taste. This spicy fried chicken with pleasing aromatic biryani rice will relish your tastebuds. I am sure this recipe will be a new addition to your weekend menu. Enjoy the joy of home cooking!
