Ambur biryani is almost similar to the tehri recipe which has been posted earlier but the difference is here we need to use red chilli paste instead of powder and the biryani can be eaten with pyaz ka raita or kheera raita as side dishes.

The ambur biryani uses seeraga samba rice which is mostly found in tamil nadu but here I have used normal rice instead of seeraga samba rice to make the ambur biryani and it still tastes awesome.
