Happy Cooking with LG SolarDom: Chicken Biryani with green chutney

I love spices, their aroma always make me feel good ^^, and luckily that my Mom doesn't hate them anymore.


Now making this kind of food at home is allowed, hehe, actually not that she doesn't let me make it but I think if cooking something in the house, all the family members should be able to eat them. This time I try to crate the Chicken Biryani (Kao mong kai) using my LG SolarDom, I use both Microwave function and grill function. Grill function can be use instead of using the hob, but you need a heavy baking pan (or better cast iron pan) that can use under hot grill. With grill function and pan, your chicken will brown nicely ^^, anyway you don't have to worry that with short cooking time the chicken is not cooked, because it will be cook with rice at the end. 
You may think that it's hard to make this dish at home because the how to and ingredient list is quite long, but the fact is it's very easy I just do my best to show you all the step that you need to do. Actually the longest time for this dish is marinating the chicken and cooking rice ^^, your working time is about 30 minutes, that's all (and most of them is put the pan or bowl in the oven and waiting, hehe). I can't tell you exactly how many people this recipe serves because it depends on how hungry you are. 
Serve this aromatic Chicken Biryani and green chutney with cucumber and tomato, I'm sure you will think it's worth making.

  1. Hello meen, I've been following your blog for almost 6 months now without leaving any comment so I decided to quickly say hi today, just so you know you've got a fan somewhere. LOL. Your blog makes sense to me just like http://danieluyi.com, another similarly interesting blog that I'm also a fan of.

    Keep it up.

  2. Now, this looks like the kind of biryani I like! I'm intrigued by the shallots cooked in the microwave. Interesting, will have to give it a try one day! Thanks for that!
