How to make Trending Parda Biryani / Bun Biryani / Biryani cake ( Fish chunks Dum Biryani )

  1. Firstly , in a bowl , take 1/4 cup Luke warm water .
  2. Add active yeast .
  3. Add 2 tablespoons all purpose flour .
  4. Whisk the mixture to a smooth paste . Cover and keep it aside for 10 minutes for the yeast to activate .
  5. Once , the yeast is activated , bubbles appear on the paste , add the remaining flour gradually and mix into a dough .
  6. Finally add the whole wheat and mix into a final complete non sticky soft dough .
  7. Coat the dough with ghee . Cover the dough tightly . Rest the dough for 20 to 30 minutes so that the dough doubles in size perfectly .
  8. Meanwhile , cook the basmati rice by adding a tablespoon ghee , cumin seeds , 2 teaspoons salt . Only 70% cooking should be done at this stage for a perfect fluffy biryani .
  9. I cooked in a rice cooker with 3 cups water . 3 cups water for 4 cups rice . This way the rice wouldn’t be completely cooked . Tats what we need .
  10. Add soaked drained rice to the boiling hot water for a perfect biryani .
  11. Once the rice is done , fluff it up with a fork . Don’t mix and breath the grains .
  12. In a pan , melt ghee , add oil .
  13. Add all the biryani whole spices .
  14. Add green chillies .
  15. Add a tablespoon Ginger garlic paste. Sauté for few seconds .
  16. Add sliced onions. Sauté till brown .
  17. Add one half of the fried onions and reserve the rest for later use .
  18. Add the fish chunks .
  19. Add biryani masala powder .
  20. Sauté all for 7 minutes under low flame . The fish chunks will get coated with masala . Will get roasted up .
  21. Add mint leaves .
  22. Add coriander leaves .
  23. Mix all together gently without mashing the fish chunks . Add salt to this mixture . Once done , remove from the heat .
  24. Coming to the cooking pot / cooker , where we gonna layer the biryani and give a Dum , Firstly add one part of cooked rice . Layer with fish chunks masala .
  25. Layer with fried onions .
  26. Another layer of basmati rice .
  27. A layer of fish chunks Masala .
  28. Fried onions
  29. Again rice .
  30. Fish chunks masala and fried onions .
  31. Finally add the saffron infused water .
  32. Cover the cooker and set it to cook mode .
  33. Cook for 10 minutes under very low flame if using biryani cooking container .
  34. After 10 minutes , remove the cover , Mix the biryani layers so gently .
  35. Aromatic Dum Biryani is ready .
  36. Add the roasted cashews .
  37. Garnish with fried onions and cilantros .
  38. Let’s prepare Bun .
  39. Make a big thick roti . Thickness can only hold the biryani . If thin , the bun tears off easily .
  40. Take a perfect mould for baking this bun .
  41. Grease the mould thoroughly with ghee so that the dough doesn’t stick to the mould .
  42. Place the big thick roti on the mould .as shown .
  43. Fill biryani in the centre of the dough .
  44. Seal the bun completely by pulling the dough gently . Give a smooth finished top .
  45. Bake this in a microwave / cooker .
  46. I baked it in an idli cooker .
  47. Pour a bed of salt in the cooker .
  48. Heat the salt for 5 minutes in low heat .
  49. Place a stand on the salt layer .
  50. Place this mould on the stand . Cover the cooker . If pressure cooker , don’t use gasket .
  51. Bake it for 20 minutes in low to medium heat .
  52. After 20 minutes , brush ghee on the bun ‘s surface .
  53. Cover and bake for another 20 minutes .
  54. The bun is perfectly baked . A crunchy golden brown texture shows how perfectly it has been baked .
  55. Take the mould out from the cooker . Rest the bun for 5 minutes .
  56. In an serving plate , tilt the mould .
  57. Bun falls beautifully .
  58. Top it with few cashews .
  59. Cut a Biryani bun cake , relish happily .
  60. Surprise your loved ones with this biryani bun cake and enjoy .

My Tip:

Patience is the only key for a perfect Bun biryani . A fluffy perfectly cooked biryani is the highlighter . Please be careful in measuring water to cook biryani .
