quick, easy, and delish. I used 2.10 # of boneless breasts and cut them into chunk size pieces and just simmered them in the sauce. I could see by the quantity of dry rice that it was wayyyyy too much. I just scaled it down to what I normally use...1 cup rice to 2 cups water. Didn't have any cardamom pods so used 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom. Also stuck 4 cloves in w/the rice and frozen peas. Used heaping 1/4 tsp. tumeric for the yellow color. Very nice dish. Definitely recommend the cilantro. It adds a nice layer of flavor to the dish.
Lots of ingredients with not enough flavor. Portion size was huge...
I played around with the spices til it was to our taste. The other changes I made were to use fresh mint, and canned tomatoes; I used turmeric to color the rice yellow; I also added about half a cup of heavy cream that needed using up. This turned out really good. Thanks!
Yummy yumm yum! I love this recipe. Suprised hubby with it. He is from Pakistan. (and me I am a white girl from the midwest.) This is easy to follow. Only difference I made was cut down on the chilies. I only used one.. otherwise..OUCH! So Delicious!!
Next time I'll use a little less oil, but this was fantastic! No leftovers tonight!
This recipe is great! Turned out great! Biryani, is an art...you just need to practice once or twice.
Far too much rice and, although the flavour is nice it needs more. The next time I will make only half of the rice and double the garam masala. Otherwise, it was a hit with the family.
This is how I make Biriyani. It's supper easy and fast. Take boneless chicken cut in to small chunks. Add biriyani masala ( you can buy from the market) yogurt, salt, turmeric powder and cook the chicken. Add a little bit of coconut milk and make it a thick gravy. Then mix well with cooked rice. Add saffron and sprinkle some fried onions on top! Biriyani masala is with all the spices you need so you don't have to add any spices separately. Enjoy !
