Chicken Biryani is a firm favourite at takeaways but why not try making it at home. It is easier than you think. There are so many variations of this recipe, it would be impossible to list them all so I have loaded my favourite. This main dish is always worth waiting for and always a crowd pleaser. The hit of the red pepper, onion and garlic is mellowed by the soft sweetness of the sultanas.  Also when you want a full bodied meal for 4 people in a rush, this can be ready within 45 minutes. I serve this with rice and sag aloo for a good size meal without the hassle.
