I enjoyed this recipe - it was easy to make, prepared quickly, and is tasty. Next time, I will pre-wash my rice to avoid some of the pastiness.
I used ingredients that I had on-hand which included:
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs - I'd recommend thighs over breast, or bone-in pieces (even though most authentic Biryani seems to contain bone-in chicken).
Ground cinnamon - since I had no sticks available, using ground cinn. did not detract in any way.
Dried mint flakes instead of fresh - again, using dried mint had no negative effect.
Ground ginger - no problem with this substitution.
Sour cream instead of yogurt - another harmless substitution.
I had no cardamom...it would have been nice, but it was fine without.
Preparation - I prepped the potatoes as directed, then prepped the rice and chicken separately. I combined the chicken, potatoes, and rice at the very end to speed the process and keep the potatoes from getting too mushy.
This was not exactly like the Biryani that I eat in restaurants, but was every bit as good in its own right.
