AMBUR BIRYANI RECIPE.
AMBUR CHICKEN BIRYANI RECIPE
SPECIAL GUEST POST FROM JAY OF TASTY APPETITE.
Today, i am proud to announce that i have another special guest foodie blogger, Jay. We have been great friends for a while now, i like to surf through her recipes, bookmarked many of them, and have tried a few... but not yet the biryani- which needs a lot of rice cooking skills.
Jay, I will try to try this after you become my guest :) :)
I love flavored rice very much, especially biryani. When i saw her "Ambur biryani", i fell in love with it instantly, in fact Jay was a bit reluctant to post this recipe, because she had this published already this year.. But i made a special request- ie: nothing less than ambur.. that leaves her no choice. Thanks Jay for that- so sweet of you to oblige.
Let's hear from Jay-
This is Jay, of Tasty Appetite..! First of all, I would like to thank Ms.Wan, my favorite foodie friend, for giving me this honour of guest blogging in her awesome space.
To speak about myself, I am an Indian by birth & soul. I am a passionate cook, mom of two lovely kids, who keep me busy all the time. My hubby is a software professional & its my hubby’s encouragement that helped me to start my own food blog & share the recipes with the world. Cooking has become a passion for me, since the day I started blogging.
My speciality is Cuisine from South India, but I love trying out new recipes and giving them a twist of my own wherever possible. The sources of my recipes are – My mother, Mil, grandma, Internet, magazine, friends & of course my own experiments. This blogging world has encouraged me to try out new recipes and to exhibit my talent. Another plus is, it has earned me so many blogger friends worldwide.;)
