Ingredients used in Chicken Biryani (B)
• Cinnamon sticks/dal cheeni - 2 numbers.
• Cardamoms/choti ilaichi - 6 small.
• Cloves/loung - 10 clove.
• Green chillies - 5 numbers.
• Cumin powder/pisa zeera - 1 tea spoon.
• Red chilli powder/pisi lal mirch - 2 teaspoons.
• Turmeric powder/pisi haldi - 1 tea spoon.
• Coriander powder/pisa dhania - 3 cup.
• Plain yogurt/curd - 2 cup.
• Garlic paste/pisa lehsan - 1 tea spoon.
• Ginger paste/pisi adrak - 1 tea spoon.
• Fresh coriander/cilantro leaves/hara dhania - 1 bunch.
• Mint leaves/pudina - 1 bunch.
• Onions - 5 large.
• Basmati rice - 3 cup.
• Whole chicken - 1 no.
• Garam masala powder - 1/2 tea spoon.
• Lime juice or lemon juice - to taste.
• Salt - to taste.
• Saffron (zafran) - pinch.
• Whole milk - 4 tablespoons.
• Cashew nuts (kaajoo) - 20 numbers.
• Eggs - 4 numbers.
• Clarified butter (ghee) or cooking oil - 1/2 cup.
• Cooking oil - to fry.
  • Beat the plain yogurt well. Marinate chicken with the yogurt, ginger paste, garlic paste, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, chilli powders, and salt. Let it marinate for about one hour.
  • Meanwhile, slice onions very thin, and deep fry in oil mixed with 1/4 cup of clarified butter or cooking oil until crisp.
  • Clean and wash the rice, drain, and set aside. Clean and chop the mint leaves and coriander leaves.
  • In the same oil, fry the chopped cashew nuts and raisins until golden brown, drain and set aside. Slit green chillies, and mix into the marinated chicken. Put chicken and marinade into a kadai or pot in which the onions and cashew nuts were fried. Add a little water, cover and cook until the chicken is half done. Remove the chicken pieces with a slotted spoon and measure the stock. Add enough water to make it six cups.
  • Put the rice into a rice cooker, add the whole spices, arrange the chicken pieces on top, sprinkle three-quarters of the fried onions and all the chopped coriander/cilantro and mint leaves. Pour in the measured stock into which the garam masala powder has been added. Pour the remaining quarter cup of clarified butter or oil over the whole mixture. Cover and cook until well done.
  • Meanwhile, hard-boil and shell the eggs. Soak the saffron in milk (if using it). When the biryani is done, open the rice cooker, and sprinkle the saffron-soaked milk on top. Mix carefully and cover and leave on very low heat for a few minutes.
  • Just before serving, mix in the juice of half a lime or lemon. Arrange on a serving dish and garnish with the remaining fried onions, cashew nuts, raisins, and boiled eggs.
