  1. I love all your recipes and this is perfect chicken pulao … just wanted to correct the verbiage though… Biryani is a recipe where rice and meat are partially cooked separately and are layered and are allowed to cook together under Dum with no additional added water while Pulao is the recipe where meat is cooked a bit first and perfect amount of water is added that supports proper cooking of both meat and rice… In that sense this comes under guilt free chicken pulao … 🙂 anyways kudos to you for bringing out creative recipes onto the wider Audience… it is really nice of you sharing traditional recipes in your family… keep up the good work

  2. Very easy to follow, but I had to look at the recipe because sometimes it gets fast forward. Thanks for your videos. This cooking process makes it a 'Kachi Dum Biryani'.

  3. Mam plz upload more healthy diety weight loss recipes. ❤i reduced my weight 10 kg in one month by following oats. Boiled turmeric chicken. Nd chapathi salad.

  4. Madam please guide for choosing rice out of red rice,boiled rice (used by mostly Bengali),brown rice .I know brown rice have come carb but I think the other options are also good (red color rice ,which u have used in ur recipe).so that it will be affordable.

  5. Hi ma'am,
