In my last post, I shared with you the history and approach to this sophisticated style of Indian cooking. This month’s recipe is Dum Pukht Chicken Biryani, the most elegant of the varieties I have tasted. It is special because spices are added during each step of the cooking process, in the chicken marinade, cooking the rice and the final preparation that come together in the end to deliver an amazingly sophisticated yet subtle meal.
