Recipe Method

  1. Wash and boil the chicken bones in 1 1/2 litres of water for 20 minutes. Drain and discard the bones. Reserve the stock. Boil the rice in chicken stock A with bay leaves and salt till almost done. Drain the excess stock and set the rice aside.
  2. Julienne half of the ginger and grind the rest to a paste.
  3. Take half cup of curd and mix two tbsp coriander leaves and two tbsp mint leaves into it. Add chilli powder and turmeric powder to the remaining curd.
  4. Mix the chicken mince, salt, two tbsp coriander leaves, half of the green chillies and chopped ginger. Mix well and refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes. Divide it into walnut sized portions and roll into koftas. Melt two tbsp ghee in a pan, add the koftas and cook only to sear the edges. Drain and keep aside. Dissolve saffron in warm milk and keep aside.
  5. Heat the remaining ghee in a pan and season with cumin seeds. Add mace, green cardamom and cloves. After one minute, add sliced onions and sauté till golden brown. Add ginger paste, garlic paste and the remaining green chillies. Add coriander powder. Stir in the remaining curd with chilli powder and turmeric powder. Add the chicken balls, one cup chicken stock and salt. Cook till done and the gravy is thick.
  6. In a narrow mouthed vessel, put half of the chicken koftas to form a layer. Cover with a layer of the cooked rice, using half of it, and sprinkle a little of the curd- coriander-mint leaves mixture. Sprinkle half of the garam masala powder, ginger juliennes and saffron dissolved in hot milk. Repeat the layers, finishing off with a layer of rice. Sprinkle garam masala powder, ginger juliennes and saffron milk over the rice layer. Cover with a moist doth and seal the vessel with a lid. Cook in a pre-heated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot with raita of your choice.
  7. Alternatively, cook and serve the biryani in an oven proof dish. If using the microwave oven, cook covered on micro high for four minutes.

    I’m 5’9 and weigh 110ibs. I smoke a lot of weed, but i finally want to quit so i can get this awesome job. Can someone give me an estimated time as to when it should be out of my system. I’ve been drinking a lot of water and have recently tried turmeric powder on pretty much everything i eat. I know they say it should be out of an average persons system within a month but im really frickin small lol.

    I know there are some basics spices such as
    Cardamom pods
    Chilli powder
    Cumin seeds
    Garam masala
    Mustard seeds
    Turmeric powder
    But which would be best to flavour a rice which would match a medium curry?
    And what is the best way to ensure the fragrancing works well?

    ‘Grind 1 cup of dried chickpeas into powder and add 2 tsp. of turmeric powder to it. Use this to cleanse your face daily by making a paste with water. ‘
    Is there anything else I can use or can I just apply the egg yolk all over my face?

    I have very light freckles on my nose and on the sides of my face. However right around my mouth I get A LOT of super dark freckles there. It just looks kinda weird. So I wanted to bleach those freckles in that area…..

    I heard Turmeric Powder worked for bleaching and was wondering if anyone has tried this??

    If anyone else has tried something else I would like to hear your ideas :)
