The Preparation Methods:
Step 1: Soak the rice for 30 mins. We usually cook rice for biryani in an open pan but you can use the rice cooker or pressure cooker too. Just make sure the rice doesn’t get overcooked. The grains need to remain separate.
Step 2: Heat the oil in a wide pan and add the sliced onions along with the whole spices (cinnamon, cloves, bay leaf, star anise). Fry the onions stirring frequently.
Step 3: Grind or crush the garlic and ginger together. Add this to the frying onions and fry until the onions turn a dark golden brown. Drain and set aside.
Step 4: Once the rice is done, mix it with the onion mixture, Fry for another minute and then add the spice powders garam masala + cumin powder + chilli powder + turmeric. Saute for a minute.
Step 5: Then add the chopped tomatoes and cook until they turn soft. At this stage, the mixture will turn mushy and gravy-ish.
Step 6: Add the washed and cleaned chicken pieces + salt + 1 cup water and mix well. Bring to boil and cook closed until the chicken is completely cooked. The meat will let out water so don’t add too much. Cook on a low flame until done. Then, garnish with coriander leaves, mint leaves. Mix well and set aside.
Step 7:Chicken Briyani ready. Serve with Onion Raita.
