Dindigul Thalapakatti style chicken biryani Recipe
Dindigul Thalapakatty style biryani - The famous Dindigul thalapakatty biryani made with Jeera samba rice is most Tamilians favorite biryani. I made this dindigul thalapakatty biryani with coconut milk and Seeraha samba rice. The seeraha samba / Jeera Samba rice is used in almost all biryanis in Thoothukudi but not in Chennai. The rice Seeraha samba gives a unique flavor to the biryani and also the coconut milk. This biryani recipe is made with no store bought biryani powder and almost everything we grind in home for this biryani. This recipe calls for more grinding and usually biryani recipe requires more stirring. But if you prepare for only your home, the recipe is easy. Get prepared for the grindings and stirrings. But it's worth the effort for the flavorful biryani. .
