AMBUR BIRYANI RECIPE. AMBUR CHICKEN BIRYANI RECIPE


AMBUR BIRYANI RECIPE. 

AMBUR CHICKEN BIRYANI RECIPE



SPECIAL GUEST POST FROM JAY OF TASTY APPETITE.
Today, i am proud to announce that i have another special guest foodie blogger, Jay. We have been great friends  for a while now, i like to surf through her recipes, bookmarked many of them, and have tried a few... but not yet the biryani- which needs a lot of rice cooking skills. 

Jay, I will try to try this after you become my guest :)  :)

I love flavored rice very much, especially biryani. When i saw her "Ambur biryani", i fell in love with it instantly, in fact Jay was a bit reluctant to post this recipe, because she had this published already this year.. But i made a special request- ie: nothing less than ambur.. that leaves her no choice. Thanks Jay for that- so sweet of you to oblige.

Let's hear from Jay-

Hy Friends,
This is Jay, of Tasty Appetite..!   First of all, I would like to thank Ms.Wan, my favorite foodie friend,  for giving me this honour of guest blogging in her awesome space. 

To speak about myself, I am an Indian by birth & soul. I am a passionate cook, mom of two lovely kids, who keep me busy all the time. My hubby is a software professional & its my hubby’s encouragement that helped me to start my own food blog & share the recipes with the world. Cooking has become a passion for me, since the day I started blogging. 

My speciality is Cuisine from South India, but  I love trying out new recipes and giving them a twist of my own wherever possible. The sources of my recipes are – My mother, Mil, grandma, Internet, magazine, friends & of course my own experiments. This blogging world has encouraged me to try out new recipes and to exhibit my talent. Another plus is,  it has earned me so many blogger friends worldwide.;)

Now, talking about today’s post,  Ambur Biryani -  it’s a recipe for non-veg lovers. This spicy and yummy recipe is one of the famous biryani recipe of South India. It is prepared mainly using Basmati variety of rice and  has an unique appetizing taste. 
Try this recipe, surely you’ll love it.

  18. Hy Aria, biryani masala has to be added along with the other spices, while sauting in oil (ie. in between steps 11 & 12)
    I used Sakthi Biryani masala, also Aachi or MTR brand would go great. do giv a try and enjoy..:)
    thanks for mentioning Wan.:)

    1. hi lunaticg, jay's biryani looks very original and authentic. In KL there is one selling beryani gam (johore style) also fantastic-using the best of basmati rice. The restaurant is called Aladdin.
      From KL,on Jln Ampang, turn left, just before Ampang POint shopping complex. You can reach Zooooview/ Melawati/ Setapak using this road. Not far from this,its situated on the left, just before the overhead road. have a nice day

    mieli szansę potwierdzić, iż ma ona swój dokładny cel w funkcjonującej gospodarce.
    Tak dokładnie właśnie to ta ma za zadanie stworzenie prawdziwego obrazu majątkowej sytuacji, w której są obsługiwane podmioty
    na rynku. Podmiotem zainteresowania tej dziedziny, jaką
    jest księgowość, są także poszczególnie zdarzenia gospodarcze, które miały miejsce i czas na rynku a także działalności gospodarczej i jednostki,
    które mogły brać w nich aktywny udział. Dobrze pamiętać, że w sumie każde takie wydarzenie rynkowe może wpływać na sytuację

  49. Współcześnie rynek propozycji rachunkowych nie bedzie musiał
    narzekać na brak sławy. Wszystko z racji
    na fakt, że o wiele więcej ludzi zdecydowało się na założenie prywatnej działalności.
    Takie rozwiązanie może być dla dużej ilosci osób niezwykle interesujące, bo jest oczywiste, że dobrze jest stać się szefem dla samego
    sieci. Co prawda z założenia własnej firmy wynika bardzo dużo obowiązków,
    jakie mogą pociągnąć do odpowiedzialności każdego przedsiębiorcę.

    Szczególnie na tle podatkowym. Jednakowoż, wówczas gdy korzysta on z możliwości profesjonalnego biura rachunkowego, to nie musi się niczym przejmować.
