Recipe
1
Start by marinating 500 grams of chicken pieces with 200 grams of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of ginger-garlic paste, 1 tablespoon of red chilli powder, 1 tablespoon of biryani masala, and salt as per taste. Let it rest for at least 2 hours.
2
Rinse 500 grams of basmati rice under running water until the water runs clear. Soak the rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain.
3
In a large pan, bring 2 litres of water to a boil. Add the soaked and drained rice to the boiling water. Cook the rice until it's 70% cooked, then drain and set aside.
4
In a large pot, heat 50 ml of ghee. Add 2 finely sliced onions and sauté until they turn golden brown. Remove half of the fried onions for garnishing.
5
Add the marinated chicken to the pot with the remaining onions. Cook on medium heat until the chicken is fully cooked.
6
Layer the partially cooked rice over the cooked chicken. Sprinkle the reserved fried onions, 2 tablespoons of chopped mint leaves, 2 tablespoons of chopped coriander leaves, and a pinch of saffron soaked in 2 tablespoons of milk.
7
Cover the pot with a tight lid and cook on low heat for 20-30 minutes, until the rice is fully cooked and flavors are well combined.
8
Serve the biryani hot with raita or your choice of side dish.
