You can easily identify this place by a large red coloured banner hanging just about the shop and it is always packed with people enjoying their Biryani. They do not have a proper kitchen to cook inside the shop, so they prepare it in another place and then carry the containers that are called ‘Degs’ back to the shop.
The biryani here tastes totally different than the rest of the places in Delhi. They use small to medium pieces of chicken and marinate it for at least 8 hours in their secret spices and they cook it on the low flame which makes the chicken tender, moist and flavourful. After preparing the chicken they mix it with there selected almost-cooked rice, the same rice they have been using for many years, and then leave it on Dum. This process completely cooks the biryani and add the unmatchable flavour of chicken in the rice.
The biryani is a little oily but it gives a flavourful ride to your mouth. They also keep a big container of Dhaniya Raita which is made from filtered Indian curd mixed with spices, cilantro, and mint leaves. It tastes amazing when you have it with a plate of the Best Chicken Biryani in Delhi.
They also have Buffalo Biryani which tastes equally delicious but that requires a separate elaborative article.
