chicken biryani with roasted tomatoes | Tomato chicken biryani recipe with step by step photos :
- firstly, heat sesame oil in a thick bottomed vessel. add bay leaf, chopped garlic, curry leaves to the pan. we are not adding any other whole spices.
- now, add thinly sliced onions and fry till slightly brown or transparent.
- tomatoes are to be taken double the quantity of onion. i have taken 1 large onion and 2 large tomatoes. finely chop the tomatoes and add it to the pan. fry for half a minute.
- Further, add chicken, turmeric powder, salt and mix well.
- together add, ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder and mix again
- add water enough for the chicken to get cooked. close and cook until the chicken is soft and cooked completely. takes about 20 minutes.
- while the chicken is getting cooked, soak the basmati rice in water. basmati rice cooks faster and it should be soaked for more than 30 minutes. that is the reason why we are soaking it midway of the recipe.
- take a skewer and insert tomato chunks to it. roast the tomatoes in direct flame until brown on all sides.
- roasted tomatoes look like this. You can also remove the skin and add the flesh but i like the flavor of burnt tomatoes. keep it aside.
- when the chicken is done completely, open and add kashmiri chilli pwoder, garam masala, kasuri methi and soaked rice. drain the water completely from the rice and add it.
- mix well and fry for few seconds and add water. water to be added in the ratio: 1:1.5 that is for 1 cup rice its 1.5 cups water. here i have used 1.5 cups rice, so 2.25 cups water is used here. along with it, add roasted tomatoes and salt to taste.
- mix well and add chopped coriander leaves on top.
- close it with a aluminium foil sealed air tight and close it with a lid. not a typical dum but i dont want the flavors to escape.
- close it with a lid and cook on low flame for 20-25 minutes.
- open the lid and throw away the foil sheet.
- fluff it up gently and serve hot with raita and salna/plain gravy
