    Traditional Ambur briyani does not have mint or coriander. They use a big cup of onions, tomatoes and garlic. You need two pots to make this briyani. 3/4 cooked rice and 1/2 cooked meat (generally chicken) and then mix both and cook together.

    Really delicious! thanks for sharing recipe! I made the red chili pasted by soaking the de-seeded chillis and then mashing with a teaspoon in a small bowl. And used just 1 tsp and got a great flavour. Have no pressure cooker so i made everything on stove top, covered, and the recipe worked great!

    ♥ I am from Hyderabad and I love my Hyderabadi Biryani more than anything else, but this seems unique to me and would love to taste this if I happen to visit Chennai anytime ♥

    Hi Mullai,

    Wanted to know if you bought the zeera samba rice in the US or if you brought it from India? i have not been able to find it here in the raleigh area or in any online stores.
