Recipe
1
Rinse 250 grams of basmati rice in water and soak it for 30 minutes. Drain the water and set aside.
2
In a bowl, mix 200 grams of cubed paneer with 150 grams of thick curd, 1 teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste, 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of red chili powder, 1 teaspoon of biryani masala, salt to taste, and 2 tablespoons of chopped coriander leaves. Marinate for 30 minutes.
3
In a deep pan, heat 3 tablespoons of ghee. Add 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, 2 bay leaves, 3 cloves, 2 green cardamoms, and 1-inch cinnamon stick. Sauté for a minute.
4
Add 1 thinly sliced large onion and cook until golden brown. Then, add 1 chopped tomato and cook until soft.
5
Add the marinated paneer to the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes on medium heat.
6
In another pan, boil 1.5 liters of water with 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of oil, and 2-3 drops of kewra essence. Add the soaked rice and cook until it's 70% cooked. Drain the water.
7
Layer the partially cooked rice over the paneer mixture in the deep pan. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of chopped mint leaves, 1/4 cup of chopped coriander leaves, and 1/4 cup of fried onions on top.
8
Seal the pan with aluminum foil or dough and place a tight-fitting lid on top. Cook on low heat for 20-25 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse (dum cooking).
9
Gently mix the biryani and serve hot with raita or a side salad.
