Soak rice in water for 15 mins and then drain.
Fry the rice and keep it aside.
Heat dalda in a pressure cooker.
Fry the onions, spices, tomato, ginger paste, garlic paste, green chillies, coriander leaves, mint leaves and turmeric powder, until the oil comes on top.
Grind together cashews and poppy seeds.
Mix the cashew-poppy seeds paste with the curd.
Add the chicken and curd mixture into the masala and mix well.
Add enough salt to it.
On top of this, spread the rice and add about 5 cups of water.
Cover and cook with the weight on, until you hear 1 whistle.
:- Add 4 1/2 cups of water, since the water comes out from chicken, tomato, etc.

Quick easy recipe.could make it really fast when my two boys asked for biriyani.and they Were impressed.thanks to you.
i started cooking with this recipe and it was awesome.. bagged everyone s appreciation... it was really yummy n delicious.. thanks a lot..
We tried today. But we added Star Anise with the spices specified here and added some pepper while grinding cashew nuts. Here poppy seeds are banned .But it turned out very well. It looks something similar to yummy Chettinadu Biriyani available here in some Anjappar Chettinadu restaurant.Thanks a lot.
I have a doubt..... Should i be cooking it in low flame or high flame????
came out really well thanks
