Mughlai Chicken Biryani

Updated on November 21, 2009

Chicken Biryani

This is a very famous Indian dish, available in most Restuarants. We prepare at home with our own little twist ...

Ingrediants:

1. 1 full chicken cut in medium size pieces

2. 3 spoons Biryani masala, I use Shan brand Malay biryani

3. 2 onions

4. 6 chillies (small) cut in lengthwise

5. Ginger, Garlic paste 1 tbsp each

6. 2 tbsp salt

7. 3 tbsp yogurt (curds)

8. 1/4 tbsp garam masala

9. 1 tomato

10. 2 tbsp coriander powder

11. Coriander leaves (Cilantro)

12. 3.5 cups white Basmati rice

13. Optional - few bay leaf, couple of Cinnamin sticks

14. 4 tbsp oil

Preparation method:

• First marinate Chicken pieces with Yogurt, garam masala, salt, Biryani masala, ginger & garlic paste for few hours. This gives Chicken very good taste.

• Soak rice in water for about 1/2 to 1 hour

• Now heat oil in a vessel in which you will be cooking biryani

• add chillies and fry for 1-2 minutes

• add onions and fry untill they are brown

• add tomato fry for couple of minutes

• now add marinated Chicken with other ingrediants, coriander powder and mix everything together and fry for 15 minutes turning once every few minutes

• now add bay leaf, cinnamin sticks, coriander leaves and fry for 2 minutes

• now add 5 cups of water and soaked rice

• cook until rice is done mixing the contents occasionally

This is a classic chicken recipe and should serve for 4-6 people.

bon appetit
