If you are a lover of Indian food, then you will love this dish! This is a skillet version of the Indian biriyani, no need to bake in the oven it is all made in a skillet with the same authentic flavors, do not use low-fat yogurt for this or it will curdle, use whole milk yogurt. If you have any saffron add in a pinch to the rice when it is cooking, along with a very small pinch cinnamon and 2 teaspoons salt, use 3 cups water or chicken broth with 1-1/2 cups basmati rice. You can adjust the jalapeno peppers and chili flakes amount to taste and also use as much curry as desired.
