Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani

We normally prepare the lucknowi style biryani at home.But always wanted to try out the hyderabi style.In this the chicken is cooked along with the rice.Hence it is also sometimes called as Kachhi biryani.This recipe is quite simple only with some preparation for the marinade.Rest you don't need to do anything,just the dum cooking does it all..:)

Ingredients -
ginger garlic paste
garam masala
coriander/dhaniya powder
cumin/jeera powder
turmeric/haldi powder
red chilly/mirchi powder
coriander leaves/dhaniya patta
mint leaves/pudina
basmati rice

Method -
Wash the chicken.
Marinate the chicken with the following for around 3-4 hours-hung curd,ginger garlic paste,garam masala powder,haldi,mirchi,dhaniya,jeera powder,dhaniya patta and pudina.
Cook the basmati rice half done with some whole garam masala(elaichi,dalchini,laung).
Heat oil in a non-stick pan.
Fry some chopped onion till brown.
Once done remove the onion and keep them aside.
Now layer the half done rice,fried onions,then the marinated chicken,again the rice and so on.
You can add whole slited green chillies in between.
On the top layer add a lemon wedge.This gives a nice tangy taste.
Cover the pan and cook it on sim for around 45min.
Cut through the layers and serve hot biryani with raita :)
