One of my favorite food is Biryani and you would already know about it if you follow my personal profile. Chicken Biryani is made with different preparations in different states and different districts as well. I, Personally love the ones which is a wee bit spicier. I do not cook at home usually, or I may say I never cook as that interest hasn’t come to me yet and my mom is a great cook. But one recipe which I had to learn from Mom’s Kitchen was of Biryani and chicken kebab.
I took in-charge of getting the meat and all other groceries as I had to learn everything. I ordered groceries online as always and thank God I came across brownapron that I could order chicken online as well. They have wide range of meat on their website. I ordered whole chicken without skin for Biryani and Chicken Boneless cubes for Kebab.
