  • Take chicken into a bowl. Try to use leg pieces and big chunks of chicken for making biryani.
  • For marinating add ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, lemon juice, salt, biryani masala.
  • Leave 1 tsp biryani masala in the pot.
  • Add curd, red chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, finely chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves. Mix everything well together.

For Rice:

  • Boil water. Add shahjeera, peppercorns, black cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, bay leaves, ghee and salt. Let the water come to boil.

  • Cook rice on medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • After boiling rice for 5 minutes turn off the gas.

Assemble:

  • Take chapatti dough and make a thin string of it.
  • Stick it to the lid with which we will cover the pan for making biryani.
  • Doing so we ensure no steam is escaped while making biryani.
  • Take thick bottom pan. Add ghee and spread it at the bottom of the pan.
  • Give a layer of marinated chicken. Add water that chicken has released while marinating.
  • Add more water. Add ghee, fried onion. Drain the boiled rice and layer it over the chicken.
  • You can let a little water remain in the rice. Add 2 tsp water in which we boiled rice.
  • Take saffron strands into a microwave safe bowl and add water in it. Microwave it for 30 seconds.
  • Add this saffron water over rice.
  • Add the leftover biryani masala over this rice.
  • Sprinkle coriander and mint leaves, fried onion and lots of ghee.
  • Seal the pan with the dough lined lid.
  • Cook the biryani on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Cook it for another 10 minutes on low to medium heat.
