Hyderabadi Biryani


Although Biryani is not Pakistan’s official dish, it is a favorite of all Pakistanis. Those in search of something flavorful and spicy will find Hyderabadi Biryani to their liking. It is appropriately referred to as Pakistan’s “royal dish.” I’m not sure how to describe Pakistanis’ fondness for Biryani.

It’s a sensation, an emotion. Biryani is, in a nutshell, life! Chicken curry is combined with boiling rice in this meal. However, such bland explanations will not do credit to this delectable delicacy. So, allow me to explain how to make Biryani, everyone’s favorite food.

Today, we’ll talk about Hyderabadi Biryani. It has a unique feature in that it is quite simple to manufacture. Here’s how to do it.


Hyderabadi Biryani

  • 1 kilogram of poultry
  • 1 pound of Basmati rice
  • 4 onions (medium size)
  • 1 quart yoghurt
  • 3–4 Tablespoons Oil
  • For enhanced flavor, use 2 tbsp.. of ghee.
  • 2 tablespoons ginger-garlic paste
  • Leaves of coriander and mint (the more the merrier.) However, there are certain limitations.
  • 2 teaspoons of chili powder (red)
  • 2 tsp Biryani Powder
  • Salt (Take it slowly.) High blood pressure is becoming very common.


  • Place the chicken in a mixing basin. Mix in the curd well.
  • After that, season the chicken with red chili, biryani masala, and salt.
  • Mix it well. Assemble the spices and make sure they’re evenly distributed.
  • After that, place the mixture in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
  • Take out that large pot that you have at home. No way! This isn’t the one to use for bathing. The large one that you use when you have visitors.
  • Fill it with 7 to 8 glasses of water. Add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of oil.
  • Toss in some rice. When the rice is half done, strain it. Remove them from the equation as well.
  • In a separate saucepan, combine the oil and ghee. Toss in finely chopped onions.
  • When the onions have become a light brown color, add the chicken mixture.
  • Cook for 20 minutes on low heat.
  • Cook a second onion in a separate pan to serve as a garnish.
  • You’ve arrived at the final step.
  • Begin to layer the Biryani. Place a layer of rice on top, followed by the chicken curry. Then there’s rice and chicken curry once again. Rep this process until you’ve exhausted all of your options. The rice should be the top layer.
  • Sprinkle it with coarsely chopped coriander, mint, and cooked onion.
  • Place a cover on top of it and apply light pressure.
  • Cook for another 5 to 10 minutes on low heat, depending on how cooked the rice is.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and cover it with a lid for another 10 minutes.
  • Serve it with raita and salad while it’s still hot. Appetite for Bones!
  • This was a simple Hyderabadi dish to prepare. I hope you enjoy it.
