Chicken biryani recipe instructions

  1. Marinate chicken with spices and 4 tablespoon yogurt and let it sit for 20 minutes..
  2. In a large pot for biryani take water, bay leaf, cumin, black pepper and salt. Bring water to boil then add soaked rice. Mix well so spices release flavors. Cook rice until 70% cooked then drain all water and keep rice in strainer until required. (Mix little oil in rice to avoid sticking.).
  3. For gravy: In a wok, fry potatoes with a pinch of salt until golden brown, transfer potatoes to paper towel and set aside. In same oil, fry sliced onions until crispy golden. Drain oil on a paper towel and spread on a single layer to crisp. Crush onion with hand or in a food processor and mix in marinated chicken..
  4. In same wok, leave only ½ cup oil and (remove extra oil) cook marinated chicken for 7 minutes until colour changes then add tomato puree and cook further for 10-15 until all tomato water dries and oil separates. Your chicken should be tender by now or cook further as needed. Sear chicken (bhunofy) well for rich taste. Now add whipped yogurt,and bring gravy to a boil. Now, mix in chat masala (if using) potato, prunes, mint, coriander and green chilles, mix well. Chicken gravy is ready..
  5. Assembling In the large thick bottom rice pot smear 2 tablespoon oil in bottom. Make first layer of ⅓ rice in the bottom then add a layer of half of chicken gravy. Now make second layer of ⅓ rice and another layer of chicken gravy dividing chicken and potato evenly in each layer. Finally, add third layer of ⅓ rice. Add another 2 tablespoon of oil on top of rice..
  6. Mix orange colour, saffron and water together. Spread evenly over the rice. (You may also add kewra water along with saffron) Cover pot with foil to seal the steam. Cover with lid too. Keep the pot for dum for 15-20 minutes until rice are fully cooked and steam rise to the top when lid is removed. Mix rice with a large flat spoon or a small plate. (Do not over mix to break grains.) And serve hot with raita and kachumber..
  7. Notes Rice are most important thing in biryani. Boil rice should be aromat with spices. Make sure your are under-cooked when you boil because we’ll cook again for 20 minutes. Searing (bhunofying) is most important step in making gravy.The yogurt you add later with restore water content of gravy but if your gravy is too dry add little extra water..
