Easy Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani Recipe





Hyderabadi Biryani is the first thing that pops into my mind when I think about Hyderabad. It is one of the most famous biryani recipe made using Dum type cooking. It is usually served along with Mirchi ka salan and onion raita. This recipe is an easy version of Chicken Dum Biryani, which needs overnight marination of chicken in spices and cooking of all the ingredients in a very slow flame in a sealed container. You need a heavy round bottom, handi and a fitting lid for making this dish. Don't get scared seeing the long ingredient list; it is an easy breezy task. 



To Marinate:

Chicken: 500 gm
Curd: 1/2 cup
Oil: 1/ 2 cup
Chilli Powder: 2 tsp
Coriander powder: 1 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste: 2 tsp
Coriander finely chopped: 2 tbsp
Mint finely chopped: 2 tbsp
Green Chilli: 1 
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Salt: To taste

To Powder:

Shah Jeera: 1 tsp
Black Peppercorn: 1 tsp
Cardamom: 4
Cinnamon: 1
Clove: 3

Other Ingredients:


Basmati Rice: 2 cups
Fried onion: 2 tbsp
Saffron: Pinch
Bay leaf: 2
Star Anise: 2

Procedure:


1. Clean the chicken, grind the ingredients mention in the "to powder section" and add it to the chicken. Add Chilli powder and all the other ingredients mentioned in "to marinate" section to the chicken and mix well. Leave it overnight in the refrigerator.



2. Wash basmati rice and soak it in water for an hour

3. Heat one liter of water in a large pan, add Bay leaf, mace, and salt to it. Once the water is hot, add the soaked basmati rice to it.

4. Cook until it is 3/4 cooked, it must be a little bit undercooked when you taste it. Drain the water and keep the rice aside.

5. Take the Handi and add the marinated chicken in it, layer the 3/4 cooked rice over it.

6. Top it with fried onions, few chopped coriander, and mint leaves.

7. Soak the saffron in warm water or milk before hand for 15 to 30 minutes. Add it to the rice. 


8. To make a perfect dum, Make a dough with wheat and layer it over the closing lid. Now close the handi with the lid.

9. First, cook the biryani on high flame for 3 minutes, then switch on to the low flame for 15 min.

10. Now place the Handi over the tawa and cook it for 20 more minutes in low flame.

11. Open it after 10 minutes and serve it along with onion raita or Mirchi ka salan.



Tips:

*  Adjust the spices according to your taste.
*  To get crispy fried onions, roll the onions in cornflower before frying it.
*  You can 2 tsp of ghee to the rice before closing the lid
*  Do not open the dum immediately after cooking, as some of the ingredients will be still getting cooked in the heat.

2016 June Fab Bag Review


2016 June Fab Bag Review

Fab bag never fails to surprise me with a unique theme each month; June fab bag theme is " The beauty addict" The bag was looking cute in black color with the wording "Eat Sleep Makeup Repeat" printed on it in bold font. The quality of the bag and the print was excellent.

June fab bag had two full size and two sample size products, Here is the list of products that I have received this month.


2016 June Fab Bag Review


Skin Yoga Coffee Body Scrub ( Full Size: Rs 845)

2016 June Fab Bag Review

I wanted to try this brand for quite some time; I am glad I have got it in my fab bag. It Claims to be 100% natural, free from preservatives and fragrance. It has the goodness of coffee beans, coconut, and sesame oil. As soon as you open the pack, you are hit with the refreshing fragrance freshly grounded coffee beans.

Be A BombShell Blacklisted Eyeliner (Full Size: Rs 1000)

2016 June Fab Bag Review

Blacklisted eyeliner is the product that I have chosen for this month. The color is grayish back with mild shimmers in it. The pigmentation is average, but it stays on without chipping or fading off for 6+ hours. Removing it without the help of eye makeup remover is impossible.

Karite Buerre Pure Shea Butter: ( Sample Size)

 2016 June Fab Bag Review

The size of the sample was just right; it is made out of 100% wild east African pure shea butter which is enriched with vitamin A& E. It can be used to treat dry skin, lips, cuticles and stretch marks. It spreads on easily, gets absorbed quickly within a few rubs and does not leave any sticky or slippery residue. This shea butter can also be used on hair as a hair mask (Yet to try it) I have been using it as lip balm and stretch mark cream, and it has done a good job so far.

Rene Furterer smoothing Shamoo:  (Sample Size)

2016 June Fab Bag Review

The full size of this shampoo cost whooping Rs5400 for 1000ml. The shampoo claims to be free of sulphates and cleanses the hair while taming the frizz and making it smooth and shiny. The sample will last for 2 to 3 washes. I wish they could provide more skincare products than shampoo and conditioner.

Overall, June fab bag is a splendid combo of Skincare, Haircare and makeup products. The star products of this month are "Coffee body scrub" and "Karste Buerre Shea butter". June fab bag is YAY! for me, I have got products worth Rs.2500. If you would like to get your hands on June fab bag, Click HERE.
