Chicken Tikka Biryani...

Fatee made this from the recipe shown on one of the tele programs.


- For marination:
* Chicken 500 gms
* Yoghurt 2 tbsp
* Green paste 1 tbsp
* Tikka masala powder 2 tbsp
* Fried onion (crushed) 1 tbsp
* Crushed red chillies 1 tsp
* Lemon juice 1 tbsp
* Oil 2 tbsp
- For gravy:
* Oil 4 tbsp
* Onion 1 medium
* Tomato 1 medium
* Red chilli powder 1 tsp
* Yoghurt 4 tbsp
- For Rice:
* Rice 500 gm
* Elaichi 1
* Zeera 1 tsp
* Clove 4-5

Mix the marination ingredients into a paste and marinate the chicken for 2-3 hours.
Once marinated, cook the whole marinated mixture with chicken on a tava for 10-12 minutes.

For gravy, heat oil. Add finely chopped onions. When golden brown, add chopped tomatoes and cook till thick gravy. Add powder masalas, salt and yoghurt. Cook till the oil seperates. Now add the chicken tikka pieces and cook for 4-5 minutes on medium heat.

Boil rice with elaichi, zeera, salt and cloves. Dont cook them completely. When they are 80% done, drain the water and add the rice on top of the chicken gravy. Cover the lid and cook on very low heat for 15-20 minutes.

w'salam Muslimah. Green Masala is just a paste of ginger/garlic and green chillies which we keep in refrigerator for frequent use.

try simple recipes first. once you get those right, you will be confident enough to try other complex ones. give it a try dont worry about what others will think... if you like it then its good enough.

your email alert idea is really very good. I will implement it on the website soon , InshaAllah.

Ramadan Mubarak!

I tried this tikka biryani tonite, my rice cameout usually doesnt otherwise it came out alrite....nOt at all like ur pic i must say :-).. when was i suppose to mix the chicken gravy thats at the bottom...with the rice? i think it became more mooshy..cuz i lightly mixed it together in the end...bottom to top...

hmmm well you have to make the gravy thick and also cook the rice should be 90% cooked and all water drained out.

Try once more and you will master it :-)

Thank you so much. This is the 1st time i came to your blog, & you have excellent recipes.

thanks Sarah :-)

Hello Daagh,

I have just seen this chicken tikka biryani recipe of yours. It really looks tempting. By the way, what is the tikka masala powder. Do we have to make it a home, or you get it in the stores. Pls rply, since I want to try this biryani this week end.


Great post dear blogger! it's a delicious dish and it'd be nice if you can add something else, maybe more styles and instructions to understand the process. 23jj

This is a good recipe because there's nothing better than getting a complete food, because look at it, it has rice, chicken and yogurt, that's perfect because I had never seen a recipe with yogurt.
