I always want to make special dishes on Sundays. All other days the regular hurry ups happen as regular working days. Sunday dedicated for special dishes. I usually pre decide the recipe for each sunday and take special care that it should not be a repetitive one as well. This Sunday specials were Chicken Coconut Pulao and Chicken Korma.

The Chicken Coconut Pulao is a totally different recipe where the Chicken masala is cooked separately and sandwiched with rice. If you are looking for Biriyani Recipes I would suggest you to try the Angananan style Mutton Biriyani. What was the special menu last sunday you made??
