Chicken 1500 kg
Basmati rice 500g
Bay leaf 3 n
Star anise 3 n
Cinnamon sticks 2 n
Cloves 4 n
Cardamom 6 n
Shahi jeera 1 ts
Lichen (kalpasi) 1ts
Pepper corn 6 n
Mace 2 n
Golden fried onions 150 g
Red chilly powder 2 tb
Coriander powder 1 tb
Cumin powder 1 ts
Ginger garlic paste 1 tbs
Yogurt 1 cup
Coriander chopped 1 b
Mint chopped 1 b
Green chilly 5 n
Oil ½ cup
Lime juice 2tb

First make a powder of all the spices,

Take a bowl add chicken pieces and add made masala, chilly powder, ginger garlic paste, turmeric, salt, coriander powder, curd, chopped mint leaves, coriander leaves, fried onions, green chilly, lime juice, oil, and mix it well, and put it in the refrigerator over night,
Heat water in a vessel and let it come to a boil add oil, salt, Shahi jeera, bay leaf and add basmati rice (soak the rice 1 hour) cook the rice till 70 %, add layer of chicken marinate and then this layer of rice. Sprinkle fried onions, and add dissolved saffron strands in milk , then add ghee (optional), kewra water, rose water and put the lid on which is lined with sticky dough for dum.
First cook it on high for first 4-5 minutes then reduce the flame to low, use a griddle under this for even heat transfer. And cook it for 25 to 30 min and switch off the flame. After 40 minutes this is ready for opening the seal of the lid. Never mix the biryani just check it removing the top rice and checking the bottom of the vessel for burnt marks.… you can find detailed recipes at my website and also find many videos with recipes at simple easy and quick recipes and videos of Indian Pakistani and Asian Oriental foods "Reach vahrehvah at –

    people who think it’s strange that you dance when the Biryani is done
    probably never opened a hot steaming pot of something cooked in indian
    spices and ghee XD biryani_dance.mp3

    I have tried this recipe. Though it is difficult to find all the
    ingredients in USA. But believe me it turned out awesome. The best part was
    the burned part of chicken. Thanks a lot for sharing all cooking tips.
    God Bless. .
    Keep it up

    I have everything but the handi,

    I live in California, USA and i got everything except the handi and the
    only way i can see getting my hands on one of the non stick handi is to
    have my parents send me one from India,

    It would be great if i could find one online.

    If anyone know where i can buy it from please respond i’ll be so very
