My First Chicken Biriyani
Got this recipe from Suvir Saran's first book, Indian Home Cooking. Different from a lot of recipes I've seen around but I really liked it. Made a raita of yogurt, tomatoes, red onion, chilies and mint.
Also, in this and some other recipes, he uses whole spices the texture of which I have come to like.
You get a nice crunch but not a big burst of flavor as most of it has cooked out.
How did you cook it Eddie ?
I minced onions , garlic and ginger in the food processor, fried some whole spices and then added the onion mixture and fried it all until brown, added ground corriander and cooked about a minute or so. Then added yogurt a little at a time until evaporated. Added chicken and cooked until just opaque and then added water and covered for 5 min. Then added garum masala and cooked a few minutes and finally added cream. Then did alternate layers of basmati rice and baked it in the oven.
How yummy it looks.
(At first I thought the raita had a cherry on top, but now I am thinking tomato or a very impressive piece of chili!)
