Chicken Biryani

Chicken biryani, this rice variety seems to have lotz of method to prepare.I have tried many and finally stuck with just two of them.One of the method i use is making the rice and gravy separately and then layer them and do "dum".Second one, got the recipe from one of our friend.In all our get together , we made sure that he cooks his tasty biryani.It's very tasty and easy recipe.

Chicken - 1lb
Onion - 1 large (chopped fine)
Tomato - 1 (chopped)
Chilli powder - 1tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
Garam masala - 1tsp

Ginger garlic paste - 1 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon - 1 piece
Cloves - 2
Cardamom - 2
Bay leaves -2
Butter - 2tbsp
Oil -1tbsp
Coriander leaves for garnishing
