Cooking kachchi biryani is a labor of love and each time it is perfectly paid off when family and friends gather around the table to bond, enjoy and laugh together while savoring delicious, mouthwatering Biryani. It is a perfect celebration food for small family get-together as well as large gatherings.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Wash & clean the meat pieces. Drain water well.
  2. Make biryani spices mix. For this in a grinder take star anise, black cardamom, nutmeg, mace, white pepper, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, bay leaves & red chilies and grind them. Keep it aside.
  3. Peel off & cut potatoes into comparatively bigger size, mix with pinches of salt & turmeric powder or saffron for color and shallow or deep fry them till brown. Keep them aside.
  4. Take meat in a large bowl. Add salt, ginger-garlic pastes, beaten yogurt, biryani masala mix, oil, fried onion and mix everything very well. Now you can add smoke flavor using charcoal. We do not like the flavor, so skipping this process. Now rest it for 2 to 4 hours to marinate well.
  5. Heat required amount of water in a pot adding oil, salt, sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, cloves and bay leaf. When the water starts boiling add rice. Boil till 70% cooked. Drain the water well using a strainer.
  6. While boiling rice set the meat at bottom in a large pan, then potato & prunes, spread some crispy fried onions (beresta), milk powder, raisins, cubebs & caraway (Sha jeera) over them. Now add rice and spread around. Again spread some more crispy fried onions (beresta). Make a mixture of ghee, milk & milk powder. Pour on the rice all over.
  7. Now make a soft dough with wheat flour and set on the edge of the pot. Now cover with the lid and press on the dough so that they join tightly to prevent release of heat.
  8. Cook on high heat for 10 minutes and turn the flame to low. Now bring it to a simmer for 1.5-2 hours placing a fry pan or tawa son direct heat. Hopefully your biryani should be ready by this time. Serve warm with vegetable salad or raita.
