  • Pour oil in the pan to fry the onions and whole spices
  • Once the onions turn light brown they should be removed
  • The whole spices should turn translucent
  • Cook the rice till it is half cooked and keep it aside
  • Take a handi and pour the remaining oil in it
  • Once the oil is warm, put into it 3/4th fried onion and whole spices, 2 tsp ginger paste, 2 tsp green chili paste, I cup tomato puree, 2 tsp garam masala powder,2 tsp red chilli powder, 1 tsp haldi powder and 2 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • Then empty the marinated chicken into the handi
  • Cover the handi and cook for 10 minutes
  • The rice should now be added with half a cup of milk and a pinch of saffron
  • Mix everything and cover the handi and let it cook for 15 minutes without disturbing
  • After 15 minutes remove the biryani in the serving dish and garnish with fried onion and saffron
  • The biryani served piping hot tastes best

once the biryani is ready, do not remove the lid, let the rice and chicken cook in the stem, the flavor would mature
