500g Chicken (I have used skin whole chicken pieces from Zorabian Chicken )

For Marination-

1/4 tsp turmeric pwd,

2 tsp  kashmiri chilli pwd,

1 tbsp coarsely crushed coriander seeds, 

2 tbsp Biryani Masala, 

1 tbsp ginger garlic paste 

handful of chopped mint & coriander leaves, 

3 tbsp thick yogurt.

For Rice Preparation 

350g Basmati Rice 

 Handful of Whole spices (cardamoms, small cinnamon stick, cloves & 1 Bayleaf) 

Other Ingredients 

1/4 cup Oil/Ghee 

4-5 onions, sliced

2 medium tomatoes

For Topping: 


1 tbsp fried onions (birista) 

 Coriander & mint leaves


1. Marinate the chicken pieces with the marinade ingredients listed above and keep aside for 30 mins.

2. Next wash & soak the basmati rice for 30 mins.

3. Keep the rice to cook with dry spices and salt. Cook for 8 minutes and leave the rice a little undercooked.

 4. Mix a pinch of saffron with warm water to use later  

5. Take a deep bottom pan, add oil+ghee & add the sliced onions. Fry until golden brown  and crispy. Set aside some of this for garnish.

6. Now add marinated chicken & fry for 5 mins. 7. Add chopped tomatoes at this stage.Cover & cook for 10 minutes. 

7. Once masala is cooked through, layer the rice over it. Drizzle saffron & add the birista.   9.You can also add more ghee over the rice if you like.

8.  Cover the pot with a tight lid & lower the flame down. Let it stay on low flame for another 10-15 mins. 

Note - If your pan is not heavy bottomed, place it on a tawa. Switch flame off & let it rest for another 10 mins. Then open & garnish with fresh coriander/mint. Serve hot with raita!
