Are you a real fan of biryani? Well, if nothing makes you happier than walking into a restaurant and smelling the aroma of biryani, then you are a real biryani enthusiast.
Some like the spiciness of Hyderabadi biryani, others the richness of Awadhi biryani, whereas some love the more rustic flavour of the Delhi version, many like the juicy potato in the Kolkata biryani, and there are yet many of us who are fans of the biryani variants in Tamil Nadu and Kerala – the bottom line is that almost everyone loves biryani.
However, one variation of biryani is loved by both spicy and aromatic mildly spiced biryani lovers – the Awadhi chicken biryani! Read on to discover more about this royal, iconic dish and the quick cooking method for our ready-to-cook chicken Awadhi biryani.
Awadhi Murgh Biryani Recipe
The aim to achieve a distinct style is shown in the “dumpukht” preparation manner, which is considered the trademark of Awadhi food. The Awadhi chicken dum biryani style is said to have originated from Persia and Central Asia’s culinary traditions. This technique often entails cooking in a heavy-bottomed vessel with its lid shut (with dough) and left to simmer over a low fire for many hours, sometimes overnight.
The words “dum” and “pukht” indicate “to inhale” and “to cook”, respectively. Thus, the “dumpukht” method allows the meal to breathe in its natural aromas or fluids while simultaneously being thoroughly imbued with the flavour of spices.
In the authentic Awadhi chicken biryani recipe, rice and meat are cooked separately before being placed in layers in a pot, which is then sealed and allowed to cook gradually over low heat for many hours. Its gentle and delicate flavour distinguishes it from other types of biryani in the Indian subcontinent.
