In Delhi, they follow the Nawabi style, whereas In Lakhnow, Awadhi cuisine has been followed. In Kolkata the biryani is almost cooked in Awadhi style along with Egg and potato. Awadh's last Nawab Wajid Ali Shah was exiled in 1856 to the Kolkata suburb of Metiabruz,he brought his personal chef with him, and evolved the Lakhnow Awadhi style biryani in Kolkata. But the poorer household of Kolkata couldn't afford the meat so potatoes had been added. Now this has became the specialty of Kolkata biryani. Kolkata biryani is much lighter in spices and the rice is being flavored with Kewra, rose water and Mitha Attar. Which makes the biryani even more flavorful than any other states' biryani. Kolkata style mutton biryani is already on blog, today I'm going to share the 'Chicken biryani' recipe with you. Hope you like it.
