Kacche Gosht ki Dum Biryani is the Biryani of Nawabs. For the first timers, it is much easier and better to start with chicken. The meat is nicely marinated giving it enough time to tenderize and infuse itself in all the spices. The rice is half cooked or little more than that. Along with some other aromatic ingredients, the marinated meat is then layered with half cooked rice and sealed well with a dough and slow cooked in steam to perfection. It is really amazing to see that the texture of the meat you find in this type of biryani is far more tender and succulent than the usual biryani. The flavors and the aroma you get when you open the lid takes you on a ride to Nawabi cuisine.
