DONNE BIRYANI 

DONNE BIRYANI 

Hello friends, I am here with one more aromatic ,flavourful ,delicious chicken biryani popularly known as “Donne Biryani” ….

This biryani is very famous Street food in and around Bangalore. Here Donne means a big bowl,usually this biryani is served in a arecanut palm leaf bowls, but here i didn’t have such bowl it so have presented it using a normal steel bowl 😉(please excuse but there is no compromise in taste) …

Here are particular rice is used known as jeera samba rice which is available in any stores. This biryani can be made with mutton or chicken both tastes awesome!

This biryani tastes wonderful with its own flavour,aroma and spiciness,….I bet you end up eating more and more😆…

▪when done open lid add water 4 cups, coriander leaves,close and wait for a boil

NOTES

▪when you add rice ,please have a look every 8 minutes as there are chances of burning the bottom,so I suggest to cook this biryani in a heavy bottom vessel or cooker vessel will do…

▪any verity of rice can be used but you get that authentic taste from jeera samba rice only…

▪Chicken  or mutton can be used

▪some use potatoes along with the meat
