Step 2.

For 250 grms of chicken take 400 grms of Rice, wash it and soak it for at least 30 mins.

Step 3.

Now take a water in a bowl and add 1/4 tsp of kacha masala, 2 pinch’s of sajeera, salt according to taste, means water should be a bit salty so that when we boil rice it infuses all the flavours and salt to rice.

 

Step 4.

Now when water get’s boiled add rice and let it boil, Once rice starts boiling remove rice and drain water using strainer. At this stage rice is cooked 50% as you can see in the above picture. Rice should not be cooked more because we want our  rice to be grainy grainy and fluffy,we should not over cook at this stage. Once rice starts boiling at that time you have to drain it off. This is the most important stage of biryani.

Step 5.

Now take a Deep pan cooker,or else you can marinate chicken in cooker it self so that you don’t need to change chicken into cooker, Now add Piping hot rice on to the chicken, Sprinkle fried onions on top and 2 tsp of Ghee on it and few drops of colour around and fried cashew nuts.

Step 6.

Now put the cooker in very low flame and cook it for 45mins. If you want you can put 1st 5 mins in medium flame so that cooker gets hot by that time.

Step 7.

It should cook in very low flame so that chicken and rice get cooked evenly, By the time of chicken gets cooked, half cooked rice also gets cooked perfectly. 

Step 8.

Chicken  Biryani is ready, This is my special recipe as it comes out perfectly, fluffy fluffy rice with all biryani flavours and it don’t need an curry to go with it as it will be spicy and chicken to go with it.

Step 9.
