Recipe
1
Soak 250 grams of basmati rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain and set aside.
2
In a pan, heat 3 tablespoons of oil and add 2 finely chopped onions. Fry until golden brown.
3
Add 1 tablespoon of ginger-garlic paste and sauté for a minute.
4
Add 300 grams of chicken or mutton pieces and cook until the meat turns opaque.
5
Add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of red chili powder, 1 teaspoon of biryani masala, and salt to taste. Cook for 5 minutes.
6
Add 1/2 cup of whisked yogurt and cook for another 5 minutes.
7
In a separate pot, bring 1 liter of water to a boil. Add the soaked rice, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 2-3 whole spices (cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon). Cook until the rice is 70% done.
8
Drain the rice and layer it over the cooked meat in the pan.
9
Sprinkle 1/4 cup of chopped mint leaves, 1/4 cup of chopped coriander leaves, and 2 tablespoons of fried onions on top of the rice.
10
Seal the pan with a tight-fitting lid or dough made from wheat flour and water.
11
Cook on low heat for 20-25 minutes, allowing the biryani to cook in its steam (dum).
12
Carefully transfer the biryani into a preheated clay pot (matka) and serve hot.
