This morning I woke up to know that today is 375th birthday of Namma Chennai ( Madras ). Who does not love chennai?? Of course, except for the scorching heat 🙂 I wanted to celebrate her birthday dedicating a recipe in my dear blog!! So I am rushing to the recipe now without talking much!!

I made this thattukada muttai biriyani today which dear Chennai gave me when me and my friends were looking out for spicy food around the city. This is a chatphat biriyani recipe, best to pack in tupperware on a busy office rushing morning!! It came out real yummy close to a kaiyenthi bhavan egg biriyani. I wanted to share it with you guys right away.

The biriyani is hot & spicy, so I would suggest to adjust the spices according to your family’s spice level.”Chup chap, finish it off girl” pointing to me!!

Be a Roman at Rome 😉 Yes, Be on your feet and Have it quick in thattukada style!! You will love the spices going with each mouth 🙂
