  1. Is this for chicken biryani?

  2. Chef,

    One thing I observed/noticed is that the garam masala become progressively stronger going from veg to red meat! Last weekend, I tried making Veg Biryani, but decided to use the Poultry Garam Masala :)! It came out OK, but the spice was too strong/bitter. So I take it, we have to use very little poultry garam masala for a Veg Biryani?! Am I correct? Please help. Thanks!


    • Hi Narayan,
      Great to hear from you!
      As for the Garam masala,the more you use the easier it gets for you to reach a ‘balance’that is right for you!
      What I mean is that it is very hard to standardise a recipe beyond the ‘method’.
      You have to work out the ‘weights’ yourself !
      Hope that makes sense.
      Anah data sukhi bhava!!

      • Thanks a bunch! Appreciate your response. I guess that is what I’ve been doing the last 8 Sundays … trying to work out the ‘weights’! Very grateful :).
