The ultimate comfort food. Marinated & roasted chicken thigh pieces slow cooked with basmati rice and our special masala blend. Moreish.

This biryani is traditionally made, but with less oil and ghee. Enjoy this on its own or with any raita, dal or curry. We like to enjoy this with our Aubergine Gothsu as a mid-week dinner. – Chef Akila.
