Hi, the Hydrabadi biryani's receipe mentioned serves 2 people. I'd like to make it for 50 people, do you think you could let me know of the quantity and proportion of all the ingredients. It would be the biggest help ever. Thanks.

Chicken usually takes more time to cook than the rice. adding the chicken to half cooked rice and then letting it cook for 20min did not cook the chicken but the rice is ready.... update the recipe pls.
