How to make Hyderabadi Biryani

  1. Soak rice in water for 30 mins and soak saffron in hot milk.
  2. Marinate the chicken with curd,red chilli,lemon juice,1/2 tsp biryani masala,cardamom powder,salt,turmeric and ginger garlic paste for 2 hrs or overnight in he fridge
  3. Fry onion in oil till golden brown and set aside.
  4. Heat water in a vessel and add cloves, black and green cardamoms,cinnamon,peppercorn,caraway seeds, alternatively you can tie up these spices in a clean muslin cloth and discard it later.Boil for 5 mins and then add the soaked rice.
  5. Cook the rice till its 3/4th done. Drain any excess water.
  6. While the rice cooks, transfer the marinated chicken to a heavy bottom pot. Add fried onions, green chilies, mint, coriander leaves and pour in the oil/ghee.
  7. Layer the cooked rice and add fried onions, coriander leaves,mint and sprinkle biryani masala. Continue layering in this way till all the ingredients are used up.
  8. Pour over the saffron milk and spread a clean cloth over the pot and seal in with a tight lid,alternately you can seal the pot with some dough around the rim or foil so that all flavours are retained, this technique is known as "dum", place pot on a hot tawa. Cook for 15-20 minutes on medium flame
  9. Lower heat and cook for another 15 mins at low flame, switch off gas and let the biryani rest for another 15 minutes.
  10. Garnish with coriander and mint leaves and serve hot.
My Tip: Can be served with green salad and onions, korma, shorba, mint/cucumber or garlic raita.
