Chicken Gravy for Biryani

 

Biryani taste even more delicious with a side gravy which brings its own unique taste. Every restaurant serves biryani with dahi raita and this side gravy dish in a small bowl. The quantity is so small that we end up using it as a chutney/spread with biryani. The home made gravy is an easy and close to restaurant flavor recipe.
