How to make Chicken Briyani: Indian Rice Recipe

Updated on April 16, 2010

Chicken Biryani Recipe

Chicken biriyani is a popular rice dish in India. This recipe involves chicken pieces marinated in a spice and curd mixture and cooked with basmati rice on a low fire. You can cook briyani by using the rice cooker or pressure cooker. I have also included a link to a chicken biryani recipe video at the end of this hub. Check it out. Biryani made with goat meat (mutton) is also very popular in India and will make a fulfilling lunch or dinner for any event.

Ingredients for Chicken biryani

For chicken marinade:

  • Chicken- 250gms
  • Curd- 1/2 cup
  • Chilli powder- 1/4 teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder a pinch

For rice:

  • Basmati rice- 2 cups
  • Onion- 1
  • Tomato- 2(medium)
  • Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
  • Mint leaves- 1/2 cup
  • Coconut milk- 1 cup(optional)

For biryani masala:

Make it as a powder

  • Bay leaf- 2
  • Cloves- 3
  • Cinnamom- 3
  • Cardamom- 3
  • Perinserrakam- 2 tsp
  • Coriander seeds- 1 tsp
  • Pepper- 1/2 tsp
  • Green chillies- 2
  • Oil- 2 tsp
  • Ghee- 2 tsp
  • salt to taste

Cooking method for Chicken Biryani

Here's the step by step chicken biryani recipe:

1. Clean and soak basmati rice for 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Clean and cut chicken to required size. Mix with curd, chilli powder, tumeric powder. Let it marinate for 1 hour.

3. Take the pan and heat oil and butter. Now add chopped onions, fry for few minutes and add ginger garlic paste and fry for 3-4 minutes.

4. Add the chicken marinade, briyani masala powder, chillipowder and cook on medium flame till the oil comes out.

5. Add mint leaves and mix it well.

6. Add the rice, 4 cups of water and salt. Once it begins to boil, you can add the whistle, then reduce the flame to simmer and pressure cook for 1 whistle. It will take about 8 to 10 minutes.

7. Enjoy the chicken briyani and post your feedback in the comments section below.
