My god there r so many mistakes in this recipe. In the ingredients it is not mentioned anywhere to add turmeric powder, also paste of green chillies also not written. I cooked it without watching the video n followed only the written recipe n it came out to be tasteless. So disappointing. Plz be careful in future. Thank you

Mr Ammann, mentioning the mutton in the final preparation of chicken biryani recipe was indeed a mistake but it was never meant to break the trust of our viewers. Even after thorough checking sometimes errors may occur. Of course we have started specifying the spices recently for the convenience of our viewers. We apologize for the inconvenience. The mistake has been rectified.


Ammann says…
I am so dissapointed in the recipy. Recipy says mutton when we are cooking chicken. Video says 11/2 teaspoon spices (what spices) the recipy misses this all together. Now Mr Hyderbadwalla how can we trust you?? You don’t even recheck and proof read your recipy and your videos. Anyway I like Hyderbadwalla food and I thought I found a good authentic food but am dissapointed as it isn’t . Sorry Ammann
