Inspired by the little industrious guy at Curry and Hurry who makes a killer chicken tikka biryani that we all love, I tried a few recipes to make something similar, failing miserably each time. I thought about the flavors I liked and took a stab at creating it from scratch. It didn't come out like Curry and Hurry's but I found a general prep for veggies and Indian spiced chicken and rice. What I like is the rice is cooked well, not mush, like what happened with oven versions. It's flexible and the "recipe" below is just an illustration of a general scheme - have fun with it.
Served with raita (yogurt, green onion,cumin seed and salt) on the side.
