This is a dry curry cooked in Dum with the flavours of Mint and coriander leaves.Original recipe was Chicken biryani restaurant style by Vah Chef Sanjay tumma from vahrevah.com.Few years back my sister had introduced to me to this site and ever since that its in my favourite list…I prepared the biryani rice and the curry in dum separately and then gave the biryani dum later in microwave following my method..The chicken was perfectly cooked in dum though I was little worried.I modified the recipe as per my needs.For my method on chicken dum biryani in microwave dum method and the biryani rice refer here.
