4. 6 chillies (small) cut in lengthwise

5. Ginger, Garlic paste 1 tbsp each

6. 2 tbsp salt

7. 3 tbsp yogurt (curds)

Preparation Method


• First marinate Chicken pieces with Yogurt, garam masala, salt, Biryani masala, ginger & garlic paste for few hours. This gives Chicken very good taste.

• Soak rice in water for about 1/2 to 1 hour

• Now heat oil in a vessel in which you will be cooking biryani

• add chilies and fry for 1-2 minutes

• add onions and fry until they are brown

• add tomato fry for couple of minutes

• now add marinated Chicken with other ingredients, coriander powder and mix everything together and fry for 15 minutes turning once every few minutes

• now add bay leaf, cinnamon sticks, coriander leaves and fry for 2 minutes

• now add 5 cups of water and soaked rice

• cook until rice is done mixing the contents occasionally

This is a classic chicken recipe and should serve for 4-6 people.

bon appetit
