Method

  1. Wash rice and clean the chicken.
  2. Grind masala 2 and keep aside.
  3. Heat oil in a wok and fry the onions .
  4. Add ginger & garlic paste and cardamons, cloves, and cinnamon & bayleaves to it.
  5. Fry till the onions are golden brown.   .
  6. Add chopped tomatoes and add all the dry masalas, saute it till it oozes oil .
  7. Add the grinded masala 2 to the one in the wok and keep string it for 4 to 5 minutes.
  8. Finally add chicken and cook for 10 min till the chicken is partially cooked.
  9. Add raw rice to the above chicken stuffs and transfer it to electric rice cooker adding normal water or little more as you  normally  cook rice
  10. Stir saffron milk to raw rice  and salt to taste before cooking the rice

In the above procedure both rice & chicken are cooked and blended with masalas. If you find the rice sticky and watery , spread it in the serving dish .It is better if u cook the biryani at least 4 to five hours before serving. The rice turns dry gives a wonderful flavor.You can make it attractive by serving it with Chandi varak or garnishing it with boiled eggs or fried cashews nut.
PS -There are many ways you can cook chicken Biryani.Many people prefer to arrange cooked rice and chicken Masala layer by layer and bake it in the oven for 20 min. But I find the rice has less flavour.If you would like to bake, then cook the rice with chicken stock adding bay leaves, cardamom,cloves  cinnamon & salt to stock .
