       Hai friends i'm back and back with my Favorite dish ....Biriyani...this time chettinad style....Biriyani is one such dish i'll never get tired of eating.we will have biriyani in our menu atleast once a week...so while i was browsing for a new biriyiani recipe,i came across Solai's True Chettinad Kitchen and  Found so many nice traditional chettinad dishes and tried out this biriyani that day itself...this biriyani was so flavourfull. we all loved it and will definetely try again...so for all biriyani freaks, like me out there try this and let me know...
