Express Chicken Biryani

There are various versions of making Biryani and this is one of the quickest version of what we make at home using Ready made Biryani Masala..
Ingredients :
  • Chicken : 500 gms (With bones cut into medium pieces)
  • Basmati Rice : 500 gms (3 cups)
  • Biryani Masala : 1 pack (any)
  • Onion : 2 Nos. (Chopped lengthwise)
  • Tomato : 2 Nos.
  • Whole Garam Masala :a little (Bay leaves, Cloves, Cardamom, Fennel Seeds
  • Coconut milk : 1 cup (thick)
  • Ginger Garlic paste : 3 tbspn
  • Mint Leaves : 1 bunch
  • Turmeric : 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil : 3 tbspn
  • Coriander leaves to garnish.
Method of preparation :

  • Soak Basmati Rice and then start all the chopping work.
  • Heat oil in a big vessel / pressure cooker and add whole Garam Masala
  • Once it turns its colour add Onions and little salt and fry till golden brown and add Turmeric
  • Now add Chicken, Mint leaves, Ginger Garlic paste and fry it for 2 min and add Tomatoes and Biryani Masala and keep stirring once in 2 min (Keep the flame medium) till the chicken is almost done .
  • Water oozes out from chicken so no extra water is required but if too dry add a little water.
  • Once the Chicken is almost done add coconut milk with 3 cups water and bring it to boil.
  • Add Basmati rice and check taste, if required add salt and if the spiciness is less then a little chilli powder, bring it to boil.
  • Close the lid and reduce flame after 5 min take the vessel out of flame. Leave it as such for 5 min.
  • Now open lid and mix well. Garnish with Coriander leaves.
  • Serve with Curd Raitha.
Notes : We are not adding green chilli considering that the Biryani masala already has spiciness.
The vessel is removed from flame with in 5 min avoiding the biryani getting burnt / sticking to bottom. (Rice 1 cup : Water 1 1/4 cup)
Variations : You can add Potatoes along with Chicken
Also known as : Kodi Biryani, Koli Biryani
