Hyderabadi Murg Dum Biryani (Kacchi Style) step by step

  1. To make the Hyderabadi Murg Dum Biryani in Kacchi Style, we first need to prepare the chicken for dum..
  2. Wash the chicken thoroughly and drain out all the water. Cut into medium sized pieces and transfer to a mixing bowl..
  3. Add to it all the ingredients mentioned for the marinade and give it a good rub..
  4. Now, either the chicken can be marinated overnight and stored in the refrigerator in which case the fried onions should be added the next day, some time before cooking, or it can be marinated 2-3 hours before cooking where the fried onions can be added at the same time..
  5. Heat the milk and add the saffron strands to it and set aside to cool..
  6. The next step would be preparing the rice for the biryani. Rinse the basmati rice grains twice under clean water and soak in sufficient water for about half an hour..
  7. Boil the above mentioned quantity of water for cooking the rice and add all the whole spices and salt to it..
  8. When the water starts boiling, drain the soaked rice grains and add them to the water alongwith the lemon juice..
  9. Keep the flame high and give it a good stir..
  10. Once the water starts boiling again, reduce the heat to medium so that there is a slight boil to the water..
  11. Check the rice within about 2-3 minutes. If the rice is about 70% cooked, i.e. on smashing the grain with our fingers if the rice splits into two and we see a slight uncooked grain within, it is the right time to drain it from the boiling water..
  12. Set the drained rice aside till further use..
  13. In the meantime start deep frying the sliced onions in batches to get birista, adding a pinch of salt each time to hasten the browning and to make the onions a bit crispier..
  14. Drain the onions from the oil as soon as they turn slightly golden brown..
  15. Peel the potatoes and cut them into two halves. Fry them in the same oil for about 3-4 minutes, after all the onions are done. Drain and set aside..
  16. Next, place a flat iron griddle on the stove top and start heating it on low flame, for the dum..
  17. At the same time, to assemble the biryani, heat a heavy bottomed pan and add the oil for tempering to it..
  18. When it heats up, add the mentioned whole spices to it..
  19. As soon as they splutter, add the half fried potatoes and the marinated chicken alongwith all the marinade and mix, Immediately turn off the heat..
  20. Spread all the cooked rice over this chicken mixture so as to cover the chicken completely..
  21. Top with ghee and roughly torn mint leaves and the kewra essence. Spread the remaining birista over the rice..
  22. With the handle of a ladle, make four vertical holes in the rice and pour the saffron milk equally into them. Seal the holes lightly with the rice..
  23. Place a tight lid over the pan and seal all edges with a roll of kneaded dough (Made from the flour)..
  24. Place this pan over the hot griddle for the dum, keeping the flame high for the first 5 minute and then on low for about 30 minutes more..
  25. After the said time switch off the flame and keep the pan covered as it is for at least about 15-20 minutes. Open the lid and give it a light mix..
  26. Serve this delicious Hyderabadi Murg Dum Biryani in Kacchi Style with some raita and an onion tomato salad by the side!.
