          Chicken Dum Biryani | Hyderabadi Biryani || How to Make Hyderabadi Biryani with step-by-step photos

          Dum biryani is a mixed rice dish. It is made with spices, rice, and meat. usually is cooked on slow dum processing for around 50-60 minutes, this is aromatic, flavored, and mouth-watering spiced biryani can be used for any type of meat as desired
          This recipe is basically adapted from Hyderabadi cuisine in India, which in later used in many other cuisines due to its fabulous and flavored taste,

          Hyderabadi biryani is a classic dish of the Mughal  nizams is eye-catching aromatic rice loved by all, we all love biryani, but when it comes to preparing them most of us step back because of the tedious process, But trust me, once you learn the right process, it is such an easy breezy way of making restaurant-style chicken dum biryani you will adore
          Chicken dum biryani can be prepared in two ways,kachi(raw) method and half done method

          In the kachi method of making biryani, the raw ingredients are just marinated and placed at the bottom of a utensil and layered with partially cooked rice saffron, etc, sealed and cooked on slow dum processing, trapping the steam inside for even cooking,Pakki is the other method where the meat and rice are cooked separately and then the rice saffron, etc are layered

          Sealed and cooked on a dum process for a shorter time
          In this method, I m sharing the first method of making i.e
          Kachi dum biryani made in a Hyderabadi style this recipe yields very aromatic biryani rice with delicious, soft tender, and succulent chicken with bursting flavor
          This is my style of making Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani or Chicken dum biryani at home
