Dum chicken biryani is the most popular south Indian dish. Everybody always prefer to eat good biryani :) My earlier briyani is like pulavs....

Recently, I tried this dum chicken biryani & that was the awesome tasting biryani I had. I marinated the chicken with all Indian spices overnight & layered them first followed by the rice & other seasonings. I cooked it on the low flame for almost 40 min and I think I made the almost perfect biryani !!!

  18. Corrainder powder - 2 tsp
  19. Cumin powder - 1 tsp
  20. Saffron strands (soaked in 3 tbsp of water) - I replaced it with red food color
  21. Ghee (clarified butter) - 3 tbsp
  22. Oil - 4 tbsp
  23. Aluminum foil to cover the pan.

Directions to cook :

# Soak the rice in water for half an hour. Keep aside.

# Finely chop the corrainder leaves & mint leaves.

# Heat 1/2 tsp of oil in the pan, add 1 cinnamon stick, 3 cardamons, 3 cloves, mace, 1 bay leaf & 1 tsp black cumin seeds. Keep aside.

# Boil 5 cups of water in a pan, add the remaining cinnamon stick, cardamom, cloves, black cumin seeds, bay leaf, salt & cook the rice till half done. Remove & drain the water. Keep aside.

# Pour the oil & ghee in the non-stick pan, spoon in the marinated chicken as the first layer & then the cooked rice as the second layer. Finally, spread the remaining fried onions, corriander leaves, mint leaves & the dissolved saffron.
