CHICKEN BIRYANI

Chicken Biryani is a delicious savoury rice dish that is loaded with spicy marinated chicken, caramelized onions, and flavourful saffron rice. For my Biryani, I simplify the order of operations, while retaining the traditional layered approach to assembling it.
INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon          vegetable oil
10 grams                 garlic (grated)
10 grams                 ginger (grated)
1                                 serrano chili peppers (to taste, minced)
5 grams                  mint (finely chopped)
10 grams                cilantro (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon          garam masala
1/2 teaspoon          ground cinnamon 
1 teaspoon             salt
900 grams             bone-in skin-on chicken thighs
For rice
6 cups                             water
2 ½ teaspoons              salt
5pods                              green cardamom (smashed
)1 teaspoon                     cumin seeds
1                                         bay leaf
360 grams                      basmati rice (~2 cups)
For onions
2 tablespoon                  ghee
2medium                      onions (sliced thin)
For Biryani
1 cup                             preserved boiling liquid (from rice
)1/2 teaspoon            saffron threads cilantro (for garnish)

STEPS
  • To marinate the chicken for the biryani, combine the oil , garlic, ginger, chili peppers, mint, cilantro, garam masala, cinnamon and salt during a large bowl and stir together. Add the chicken pieces and toss together ensuring the chicken is thoroughly coated within the marinade. Allow the chicken to marinate for a minimum of 1 hour or up to overnight.
  • In a pot wide enough to carry the chicken during a single layer, add the ghee and onions and sauté the onions until they're well caramelized (15-20 minutes). Transfer the caramelized onions to a bowl and set aside.
  • Caramelized onions add a pleasing sweetness to contrast the spicy chicken within the Biryani.
  • While the onions caramelize, prepare the rice by washing during a strainer under cold running water until the water runs clear.

  • Parboiling the rice with spices not only ensures the rice is cooked through, it infuses your biryani with tons of flavour.
  • In the pot you caramelized the onions in, add the chicken during a single layer, skin-side down. Fry till its turn golden brown on one side (about 5 minutes). Flip the chicken over and fry the opposite side until golden brown. Shift the chicken back to the bowl you marinated it in.

Browning the chicken for the Biryani brings out the flavours of the spices and aromatics in the marinade.
  • To mix the biryani, add the saffron to the rice and toss to distribute evenly. Now add half the rice mixture to the bottom of the pot you browned the chicken in.
