Ingredients
For the Marinade
Chicken – ½ kg skinned, washed and cut into cubes.
Ginger & Garlic Paste - 2 tsps
Mint leaves (pudina) – few finely chopped
1 onion – finely sliced and deep fried till dark brown.
yoghurt – ¾ cup
chilli powder – 2 tbsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
garam masala – 2 tbsps
juice of 1 big lemon (about 4 tbsps)
Oil – ¼ cup
ghee-4tsp
Salt – ½ tsp
Oil for deep frying the onions – ¼ cup
For the rice
Basmati rice – 2 cups.Wash under cold water and soak for 30 mts then drain the entire water in a strainer and set aside
Whole green Cardamom – 4
Cloves – 3
Black cumin seeds (Shahi jeera) – ¾ tsp
Bay leaves – 2
Black pepper corn-4
ghee – 1 tbsp
Salt – 4 tbsps
Water for boiling – 10 cups
A wide & deep sauce pan to cook rice

Method
In a sauce pan heat about 1/4 cup of oil and deep fry onions till dark brown. Remove the onions and drain them on the tissue paper. Once cool, crush them and set aside. They are ready to be mixed in the marinade
The first step is marinating the chicken:
In a large bowl, mix all the marinade ingredients till well combined. Cover and let it rest for an hour or overnight if you have some time. This would let the chicken absorb all the flavours of the spices and enhance the taste of your biryani.
Cooking the basmati rice:
While the chicken is marinating, place a deep sauce pan on the stove with 10 cups of water on high flame. When the water gets to boil, throw in the spices (cardamom, cloves, shahijeera, bay leaves, pepper corns, ghee and salt) and cook for a minute. Now gently add in the drained rice to the boiling water and let it cook on high flame till another boil (takes 4 mts).
Immediately drain the rice along with the spices in a strainer. Let all the water drain off. Set aside.
Mixing of marinate Chicken and Rice
Place a heavy wide bottomed deep pot or vessel on the stove top and turn it on high flame. Allow the pot to get hot for about a minute.
Now arrange the entire marinated chicken at the bottom of this pot. This is your first layer.
Then arrange the half cooked rice on top of the chicken. This is going to be your second and last layer.
On top of the rice, add about 2 - 3 tbsps of ghee. Cover the pot with a lid and cook on high heat for 3 to 4 mts. Do not cook more than that because your chicken might get burnt.
Meanwhile heat a dosa pan/flat bottomed skillet on high heat till the pan is hot. Once hot reduce the flame to the lowest setting and place the chicken and rice pot on the tawa.
Remove the lid and pour in the red orange color water around in the center. This would give your rice the restaurant style look with some of the rice grains looking orange in color.
Now seal the pot with an alluminium foil or a wet towel (squeeze all the water) or using the traditional whole wheat dough method. This allows the flavors of your chicken and rice to remain inside. Cook for 30 mts undisturbed on the tawa on the lowest setting. Switch of the flame and let it rest for 10 mts.
Just before serving open the lid, gently mix in the chicken at the bottom with the rice. serve it hot with hard boiled egg and enjoy.
