Kabuli chana together with tomatoes, curd and spices too gives rise to a lovely gravy that is layered with rice, and microwaved for the flavours to fuse.
The rice itself is perked up with whole spices and herbs, which makes the Kabuli Chana Biryani even tastier. While such Biryanis are traditionally covered with foil and baked in an oven, here were have speeded up the process by using the Microwave oven instead. This reduces the cooking time tremendously.
