How to make Chicken Biryani:

STEP 1:    Finely chop onions into thin slices and fry them into small batches in hot oil at medium heat until they turn golden. Keep stirring occasionally for even frying. Take out the fried onions and spread them in a plate. This will make fried onions crispier. Likewise fry all the onions. Keep the fried onions aside.

STEP 2:    For cooking biryani take a big and heavy bottom pan. Add chicken and all the ingredients mentioned for marintion. Mix well and let the chicken marinate for 30 minutes.

Step 3:   Wash and soak rice in fresh water for 30 minutes or as per instructions. Take sufficient water in a vessel. Water must be 3 to 4 times the rice. Add whole garam masala and little salt into it and let the water come to a boil. Add soaked rice and cook until rice are 70% done. Drain the water and keep boiled rice aside.

STEP 4:   Take a heavy iron tava or griddle and place it on medium heat. We will cook this dum biryani on this tava and not on direct heat.

Mix food colour in ¼ cup water.

STEP 5:  Finally, spread boiled rice over marinated chicken. Sprinkle coloured water, remaining fried onions, ¼ cup chopped mint leaves, ¼ cup chopped coriander leaves, ghee, and at last kewra water. Secure the lid by placing wet kitchen towel between lid and pan. Place the pan on HOT TAVA and keep some heavy weight on the lid so that no steam escape out. You can also secure the lid by applying dough to its sides.

STEP 6:  For first 5 minutes cook it on high heat, then reduce the heat to low and cook for another 20-25 minutes on low heat. Turn off the heat and let the Biryani get Dum for at least 20-30 minutes on the hot tava. DO NOT OPEN THE LID IN BETWEEN THIS WHOLE PROCESS!

Step 7: Serve hot biryani with biryani raita.


  • Take heavy bottom pan for cooking Dum Biryani.
  • Marinate chicken for at least 30 minutes.
  • Soak rice for 30 minutes. Always soak and boil rice when you are about to cook biryani.
  • Use only green chili pickle for the recipe.
  • You can adjust spiciness according to your taste.
  • Never cook Dum Biryani on direct heat. Always use Iron Tava /griddle and place biryani pan on it.
  • Secure the lid by placing wet heavy kitchen towel between pan and lid and place something heavy on the lid, so that steam does not come out.
  • Cook first 5 minutes on high heat and then on low heat for 20-25 minutes.
  • After that leave biryani on hot tava for atleast 15-20 minutes or more before opening. The more you leave it for Dum the testier it will be.
  • Serve Hyderabadi Dum Biryani with Biryani Raita.
