Chicken Dum Biryani – Salem Style is one of the South Indian special Biryani from the region of Salem, Tamil Nadu. I have already posted my moms version of Salem Style Chicken Biryani which is prepared easily using the pressure cooker method. Now I am sharing my MILs method of Chicken Dum Biryani.
In my mom’s method, she uses whole spices directly while sauteeing. But MIL grinds all the spices and then add it while sauteeing. Both methods use the same amount of ingredients, but there is certainly a big difference in the taste. We in Salem, use only Seeraga Samba Rice to make Biryani. The consistency of biryani should be taken care by adding proper ratio of water. If the rice is old, add 2 cups water(1:2), if it is new rice, then, add only 1 and 1/2 cups of water(1:1.5). This rice cooks fast so the proportion of rice water consistency is very important. I have already posted the easy method of cooking biryani in a pressure cooker. Today let us see how to prepare Chicken Biryani dum method using a pressure cooker.
