How to make Banana Stem Tikka Biriyani

  1. Marinate the banana stem slices with the 'for tikka masala' ingredients for atleast half an hour. Then shallow fry them in a tawa, or bake or roast them in an oven. Set them aside.
  2. In a kadai, pour oil, add the pandan leaf, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon, 2 sliced onions and saute well.
  3. Now add the green chilli, ginger garlic paste, tomato, curd, everything one by one, and saute well.
  4. Now add the leftover tikka masala used for marination, and saute well until the raw smell goes.
  5. Add the water now with salt, and boil. Now add the rice, which is already soaked for half an hour.
  6. Add the lemon juice now, and half of the coriander and mint leaves. Mix well, close with a lid and cook in low to medium flame.
  7. When the water level is completely reduced, place the kadai on an iron tawa, and start to dum cook in low flame.
  8. After 5 mins, add the banana stem tikka, remaining coriander and mint leaves, and pour ghee. Dum cook again for 10 to 15 mins. Switch off the stove.
  9. Open the lid, garnish with deep fried 2 sliced onions, and ghee roasted cashews. Close the lid for the aroma to be absorbed. Mix well and serve hot after a few mins. That's it..

My Tip:

Adjust spiciness as per your taste. You can also pressure cook the biriyani for 2 to 3 whistles in a pressure cooker.
