Procedure

Fried Onions

  • Heat oil in a pan. Slice the onions very thin and deep fry them in batches. Keep the heat medium and fry onions till nice brown color. Drain them on the kitchen towel.
Chicken Gravy

  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan. Add bay leaf, ginger-garlic, green chilies and pinch of asafoetida. Saute till raw smell of ginger-garlic goes away. 
  • Add chicken pieces, ground spice powder and salt to taste. Mix well and cook for 4-5 minutes. 
  • Add yogurt and chopped cilantro. Let the chicken cook for 6-8 minutes till moisture evaporates. Make sure the gravy is not watery.
Rice for Biryani

  • Boil 5 cups of water in a big vessel. Once the water comes to boil, add cumin seeds, green cardamom, butter and salt to taste. Mix well and add soaked rice. Let the rice cook on high heat for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir continuously so that rice cooks evenly. Cook till it is 3/4th done. Switch off the heat and strain the rice. 
Layering of Biryani




  • Take a baking pan and grease with butter. Make a first layer with chicken gravy. Sprinkle some fried onions, chopped cilantro, lime juice and garam masala. Complete the second layer with rice. Press the rice little bit to make even layer. Again sprinkle some fried onions, cilantro, lime juice and garam masala. Pour some ghee/clarified butter on top.
