Preparation Of Ambur Chicken Biryani Special:
STARTING WITH COOKING JEERA RICE:
Wash the rice for seeraga samba well. Set apart.
Spend five minutes soaking the two dry red chilies in boiling water. Make a smooth purée after draining. Set apart.
Wash the chicken pieces purchased from FARM2COOK online and keep it aside.
In a large vessel, take 3 to 3.5 litres of water and boil it. Add 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of oil, and later add the soaked jeera or seeraga samba rice.
It is essential that you cook the rice 3/4th, as the rest is to be cooked while preparing biriyani dum.
Once its 3/4th cooked, drain the water and keep the rice aside.
TO START WITH AMBUR BIRYANI:
Now, heat a kadai or pan, add oil. For one minute, add the cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves.
Add 1 tablespoon of curd and sauté for 30 seconds. (NOTE: the curd will splutter)
Saute a few handfuls of onions till golden (NOTE: dont use total amount of chopped onions, keep half for second layering).
Add the garlic paste and cook for two minutes.
Mint and coriander leaves should be added. Cook for a minute.
Stir in the ginger paste and cook for two minutes.
When the chicken is golden, add it in and give it a good spin on high heat for 5 to 7 minutes.
Include the second half of onions and then tomatoes. 3 to 4 minutes of sautéing. They will dehydrate and release some water.
Now include the dried red chilli paste into the mixture.
Add salt and 1/2 cup of curd. Mix well. For 10 minutes, simmer the saucepan with the lid on a low heat.
Bring a lot of water to a boil in the interim. As it begins to boil, add the salt and then the rice. Be sure to combine thoroughly. 7 to 8 minutes of cooking time. The rice should taste somewhat chewy when you taste it. Drain it once it has cooked for 80% of the time.
The chicken will now be prepared. Mix the rice with the curry in a big pot.
Place everything over a tawa with a tight-fitting lid on top, and cook for 10 to 12 minutes at low heat.
After 15 minutes, turn off the heat.
Flip the lid open now and fluff the rice.
