Chicken and Rosewater Biryani (Fluffy) September 22, 2013

Fluffy Theme - Jacinta's Main (1 of 4)The biryani (from the Fluffy dinner) is a Rick Stein recipe from his book Rick Stein’s India that is also on the BBC website.

I followed the recipe fairly closely but used a hot curry powder instead of the Kashmiri chilli powder (because I didn’t have any) and I also forgot to add the bay leaves.

The chicken mixture took closer to 30 mins for the marinade to reduce.

If I was making again I probably wouldn’t bother deep frying the onions I would just pan fry and I would probably add another onion (I used 3 large onions and I would have liked a bit more). I would also add another 250-500gms of chicken as I really didn’t think there was enough for the amount of rice – the marinade was plentiful so you wouldn’t need to double the marinade if you increased the amount of chicken. I would also increase the amount of nuts and add these to the chicken layers.
