    Looks yummy, i must say a different style of cooking biryani. Like the color the gravy imparted to the rice. But I did not understand if the rice was partially cooked before the chicken was added.

    For Biryani the rice is partially cooked. For pulao, for this recipe, need not cook the rice. Just saute it in little bit of oil and cook it along with the meat.

    I have always cooked chicken biryani this way which you refer to as pulao. Whatever the method it is a big favorite anytime it is made.

    What is in a name, as long as it tastes good, right?

    I never really know whether something’s a biryani or pulao, but whatever you call it, this looks yummy!

    I grew up eating hyderabad biryani and the taste is different… and the difference I mentioned in the post is the only difference I could think of…. :)

    Do you measure the four cups of rice with a rice cooker cup or with a regular 250ml cup? By the way, I made your mutton biryani recipe today and it was delicious. Thanks

      I used the rice cooker measuring cup to measure the rice. Good to know that the mutton biryani came out delicious!

      I have not prepared it in a pressure cooker but I don’t see why you can not.

      You can try it and let me know how it comes out. You could try using 1:1.5 rice to water ratio and pressure cook the pulao for 3 whistles. As I said, I never prepared it in the pressure cook. This is just a suggestion.

      Betty, sorry for the late reply. Your comment went to spam folder and could not reply sooner. Updated the ingredient list with the quantity of green chilies and also the recipe with when garam masala needs to be added. Thanks for bring this is to my attention. I used 12 – 16 green chilies but again, it can be adjusted to taste. I like spicy food so usually add 12 – 16 chilies.
