For this you can either deep fry or shallow fry the chicken, then mixed with the gravy / masala and finally the dum process which makes the biryani heavenly taste.

3 tablepoon Oil

2 (approx 250 grams)  onion
1 bunch coriander leaves
25 numbers Cashew nuts
3 tablespoon ghee
2 tablespoon Oil
salt to taste

5 cups Water
3 cups(approx 600 grams1)  Tilda Basmati Rice
1 inch Dried Ginger
5 numbers Pepper Corns
5 numbers green cardamoms
1 Star Anise
3 inch cinnamon stick
2 numbers Cloves
1 Bay Leaf
1/2 tablespoon ghee
salt to taste
15×15 inch Cheese Cloth
5 inch Cotton String

1 cup plain flour
Water as required


  1. Chicken – I choose drumsticks and thighs, (thigh has the best meat of chicken). Skin removed, and shave off most fat.
  2. Mix all ingredients (except oil) under ‘marinade’ and rub into the chicken, marinate overnight for best results, if not atleast for 4 hours in a fridge, covered.
  3. Chop ginger / garlic / tomatoes / onion finely and store separately.
  4. Clean and cut the coriander leaves.
  5. Wash rice once and soak in cold water for 30 minutes. Drain, keep aside till required.
  6. Step 1 – Frying Chicken
  7. In a non-stick pan, heat half the oil under ‘marinade‘ section, fry half at a time, the chicken pieces, about 6 minutes on each side. Maximum for about 15 minutes, as we want only about 70% done chicken.
  8. Using a slotted spoon, spoon the fried pieces onto a plate spread with kitchen towel, to absorb excess oil.
  9. Step 2 – Preparing the Garnish
  10. While the chicken is getting fried, heat oil under the ‘Garnish‘ section, sauté the cashew nuts for about 2 minutes on low flame, till lightly golden brown on all sides equally.
  11. In the same oil, fry the onions till they are crispy. Add salt while doing this, this helps the onion sweat fast and get crispy.
  12. Keep aside till needed.
  13. Step 3 – Preparing the Gravy
  14. Heat the oil under the ‘Gravy Section‘, sauté the onions along with salt, on medium flame till soft and caramelised (about 15 minutes), while stirring occasionally.
  15. Add ginger and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes.
  16. Add the tomatoes and sauté till soft and melted, about 15 minutes on medium flame.
  17. Step 4 – Rice
  18. In the cheese cloth, gather all spices under the ‘Rice‘ section and tie it up, this is known as `Potli` in Northern India.
  19. Bring to boil the water along with salt, ghee and polti, lower the flame. Remove the potli.
  20. Tip over the rice, bring it to boil, lower flame and simmer for 10 minutes till about 50% done.
  21. Leave it open, or better still spread on a large serving tray and allow the steam to escape and the rice to cool down, this prevents the rice from further cooking.
  22. Step – 5 Layering and Baking
  23. Make a dough of the flour and water under the ‘dough‘ section, roll into a long strip and apply on the edges of the deep bottomed pan.
  24. Apply 1 tbsp ghee on all sides of the vessel, (use the ghee mentioned in the ‘Garnish‘ section).
  25. Spread a layer of gravy and some chicken pieces. Top it with a layer of rice and spread little ghee, cashew nuts and coriander leaves.
  26. Repeat the above step till you have a last layer of rice, decorate with the remaining, coriander leaves, cashew nuts, fried onions and ghee, evenly across the top.
  27. Secure the lid on the dough. In a pre-heated oven, cook for 30 mins on medium.
  28. Serve hot with a cooling cucumber raita, lime pickle, masala poppadum and sweetened Indian butter milk (aka Lassi).
  29. You could also hard-boil eggs, quarter them and decorate on the rice.
Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
