How to make Chicken Tikka Biryani

  1. Marinade the chicken with egg white, 1 tbsp of ginger-garlic paste, tandoori powder, garam masala powder, chilly powder, lemon juice and oil marinade for 15 mins, then grill it and set it aside.
  2. For the masala: Take a wok, add ghee, then add chopped onions, chopped tomato. Saute this well then add chilli powder, garam masala powder, salt, jeera powder, coriander powder and little fried onions, mint leaves and coriander leaves and curd. Bring this to boil, then add 1 chicken stock cube and add fried tikka and mix for 5 mins. Give a smoky flavour to the gravy and set it aside.
  3. For the rice: take a vessel and add water, then add whole garam masala. Once the water is boiled add lemon juice, then add basmati rice and half cook it, then drain the excess water.
  4. For the final step: take a big wok, add ghee on the bottom, then add the gravy and on the top of it arrange the cooked basmati rice. Next add biryani colour on the top with a sprinkle of fried onions, coriander leaves, mint leaves and dry fruits. Keep it in sim for steaming.
  5. Serve hot with raita or salad.

My Tip:

Give a smoky flavour to the masala for best taste.
