Chicken Tikka Biryani

After ordering the Chicken Tikka Biryani I was eager to begin eating the sizable portion. The boneless chicken, elegantly placed on top of the biryani, was cooked to perfection and the texture of the rice was soft and supple. The food was heavily doused with spices and herbs. Upon asking the waitress about the spices used in the dish she reassured me that it did not come from a commercially packed bag but that rather the humble dish contained simple herbs like mint and spices such as red chili powder, turmeric powder and black pepper.
