Default Chicken Biryani

Now, I know you guys have all had chicken with rice before, but here is a recipe for the Pakistani way...I love it and make it often. If any of you try it, please let me know if you enjoyed it!

• 1 kg Chicken (pieces)
• 500 gm Basmati Rice (washed and soaked for 30 min)
• 4 tbsp Garam Masala (whole)
• 4 tsp Garam Masala Powder
• 50 gm Butter
• 4 tsp Garlic (chopped)
• 1 cup Onions (sliced)
• 4 tsp Ginger (chopped)
• 3 tsp Red Chili Powder
• 1 tbsp Coriander Powder
• 5 tbsp Oil
• 2 tsp Turmeric Powder
• 2 cup Curd (yogurt)
• 3/4 cup Tomato (chopped)
• 4 Bay Leaves

For the marinade :
• 1-1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
• 2 tsp Ginger (chopped)
• 2 tsp Garlic (chopped)
• 1 tsp Garam Masala Powder
• 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
• 1 cup Yoghurt
• Salt

For garnishing:
• 1/2 gm Saffron (dissolved in 1/2 cup milk)
• 2 tbsp Rose Water

How to make Chicken Biryani:
• Put all the ingredients of the marinade in a bowl and mix well.
• Add chicken pieces to it and leave for an hour.
• Now boil water, add 1/2 of the whole garam masala, bay leaf, and rice in it.
• Cook the rice until 3/4 th is done, drain and keep it aside.
• Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan and add remaining whole garam masala.
• Allow it to crackle, add sliced onions and cook it till light golden brown.
• Add 1 tsp of the remaining garam masala and all the remaining ingredients.
• Cook for 5 minutes, combine marinated chicken with it.
• Cook until chicken is tender.
• Place alternate layers of chicken and rice.
• Now sprinkle saffron, remaining garam masala powder and butter in between the layers and on the top.
• Carefully end it with the rice layer topped with saffron & rose water.
• Cover and seal it with an aluminum foil.
"Love isn't perfect. It isn't a fairytale or a storybook, and it doesn't always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. Love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, every second of it was worth it because you did it ... together."
