DUM-DUM CHICKEN BIRIYANI


Does the title look humorous?Well,this is a

recipe innovated by me . In regular the process

of ‘dum’ or slow cooking is done after adding

rice ,so only one ‘dum’.

But in my recipe I cooked the chicken in the

‘dum’ process ,and the rice too in the same.

So two ‘ dum ‘ to make this recipe .

By now ,you would have known the birth of the

title to this recipe .
