How to Make Chicken Biryani with Dalcha

  • Wash the chicken and marinate with finely chopped mint and coriander leaves along with curd, salt, garam masala powder, red chilli powder, browned onions, lime juice and turmeric powder.
  • Make a paste of the khus khus and green chillies and mix into the marinade.
  • Leave to marinate for 1.5 hours.
  • After the marination, pour oil in a pressure cooker or a large pan. Add the chicken and keep aside.
  • Soak rice for an hour.
  • Boil water in a deep bottomed vessel, add oil, salt and the whole garam masala and bring to boil.
  • Add the soaked rice and cook until half done.
  • Strain and immediately transfer the rice into the pan with the chicken mixture (or else the rice will break).
  • Cover and cook on low flame until the chicken is tender.
  • Serve with dalcha.
  • For dalcha: Pour oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds.
  • When they splutter, add jeera and onions and fry for some time.
  • Add the curry leaves, coriander leaves, salt and red chilli powder.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and cook until soft (if you want to add bottle gourd pieces, then cook in a pressure cooker up to 1 whistle).
