Chicken Biryani


Ingredients:
  • Oil
  • Cloves - 3
  • Cardamom - 2
  • Bay leaves - 2
  • Onion - 1 medium
  • Green Chilli - 2
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
  • Tomato - 1 medium
  • Chicken
  • Biryani masala (Preparation given below)
  • Mint Leaves - 10 to 15 leaves
  • Garam Masala - 1 tsp
  • Basmati Rice - 2 cups
  • Salt as required
  • Fried Onions (opt) for Garnishing
  • Coriander leaves for garnishing

Biryani Masala Preparation (Blend the below mentioned ingredients) :
4 number bay leaf
  • 4 number black cardamom
  • 1 tsp black cumin
  • 4 number cinnamon sticks
  • 8 piece cloves
  • 2 tbsp coriander pdr
  • 1 tbsp cumin pdr
  • 10 piece dried plums
  • 2 tbsp fried onion
  • 10 number gr cardamom
  • 10 number pepper corns
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tsp red chilli pdr
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric


Preparation:

Soak Basmati rice in water for minimum 15 mins.

In a pan,
Oil + Whole Garam Masala (Cloves, Cardamom, Bay leaves) + Onion + Green Chilli + Ginger garlic paste + Tomato + Chicken + Biryani Masala + Mint Leaves + Corriander leaves (lil)--> Saute till the oil leaves, Masala smell goes and till the chicken gets cooked well. Add garam masala.

If using a pressure cooker,
add rice to the above curry (the proportion is usually 1 cup of basmati rice : 1/5 cups of water), add salt as required. When the water starts to boil, close the cooker and apply pressure to it. Leave for 2 whistles. Then keep the cooker in low flame for 2 mins before you switch off.


If using a electric cooker(I use this),
Put the curry, rice , req water, salt and then set on the cooker. I feel tat biryani comes best wen using an electric cooker. The rice is more separate wen cooked in it.

Garnish with fried onions, corriander leaves. Serve hot with raita.

P.S: If you are confused with the amount of salt to be added, after putting in all the ingredients and before closing the cooker, taste the biryani water. It should be a lil more saltier than req.
