Chicken kabsa, a cultural staple from Saudi Arabia. In this signature dish, rice is flavoured with whole spices, aromatic ground baharat spice blend, tomatoes and chicken stock. In my version, there are also some chickpeas added to the rice for some extra protein. The rice is served with chicken which first cooks in the onion and spice base of the kabsa rice and is then pan roasted in butter to add some colour and crispiness to the chicken. This is a beautiful dish to serve on a platter to feed guests on dinner parties or special occasions such as Eid.
Pea pilau rice, prepared with ghee and fragrant whole spices is the perfect option to accompany with meat or chicken for a dinner party or special occasion. Fluffy rice is coated in buttery ghee and spices such as cumin seeds, black cardamom and cloves which is contrasted with small bursts of sweetness from the peas.

Hello, all. Welcome to biryani recipe 240349304 on the interwebs. You might be wondering, well Abida, what makes your biryani recipe so different from all the other ones out there?? Well, I’ll tell you exactly what, discerning readers. It’s the fact that I have struggled to get to this point of a publishable biryani recipe that I can confidently share with other people. It has been a year long journey for me of trials, tribulation and hyperventilation. I should add a side note here that being Bangladeshi, biryanis are not really a traditional food as it is in Indian and Pakistani cuisine. It is usually more common for us to prepare a pilau or yakhni dish. And yep that is my very legitimate excuse that I am using before sharing my embarassing biryani making woes…
