Chicken biryani is a traditional Indian dish consisting of spices and basmati rice. This recipe, however, is more of a spin on a Indian dish called chicken korma, which has some of the same flavors of chicken biryani along with spices of cardamom and turmeric.
This dish has been well received by students at Cambridge Public Schools and was created by Melissa Honeywell, CPS's Food Service Director. Melissa created this dish to highlight the district's many populations of students who hail from different places around the world. You can easily create this recipe at home and adjust the amount of seasoning to your preference.
