Chicken Biryani.. my mom style

Biryani is always a feast. Even if you dont want to have more you will sure end up doing the same. Heres a recipe that I use to make spicy chicken biryani the way my mom makes it for us. I love the aroma that fills in the kitchen when the biryani is still cooking in the rice cooker. It just makes you more hungry though. Chicken biryani with raitha and chicken fry is the best for a sunday lunch.

This is what u'll need....

Chicken 1.5 lbs
Gg paste 1.5 tbspn
Green chillies 4
Whole garam masala
Onion 1 big
Tomato 1 big
Sambar powder 1 tbspn
Salt to taste
Fried cashews for garnish
Basmati rice 1.5 cups

Here is the stir....
  • Soak basmati rice for about 30 mins. Fry them in a pan with little oil for abut 3-4 mins
  • Clean and cut chicken into big pieces
  • Heat oil in a pan and add whole garam masala
  • Finely slice onions and toss in to fry till translucent
  • Chop tomatoes and add to the pan. Add salt and fry for 3-4 mins
  • Add the cut chicken pieces and stir for 2 mins
  • Put gg paste and slit green chillies into pan. Cook for 5-7 mins
  • To a rice cooker add rice, chicken and water (1 rice:2 water) and cook till done
  • Top it with fried cashews and serve hot with raitha
