Chicken Biryani

Chicken Biryani

To get tasty Chicken Biryani just soak the marinated chicken overnight to get the perfect flavor
To get grainy rice my mom’s tip is to soak the basmati rice in water for 5 mins and then leave it in counter for 10 mins to dry.
Chicken and rice ratio mostly i prefer 1 kg chicken and 3 cups of basmati rice [ serves 5-6 person] , if chicken is more and rice is less or rice is more with less number of meat then biryani wont come out well .
For water ratio mostly i add 4 cups of water to 3 cups of basmati rice as already chicken gravy contains water.
Once you add rice and water to chicken gravy,taste the salt and spices or if you need more spice or salt add accordingly and let it cook for 10 mins.
Then cook with  medium flame for 20 mins and switch off the stove and dont disturb the biryani for 10 mins.After 10 mins you can serve this perfect grainy chicken biryani with onion raita.
