Murgh Dum biriyani is my all time favourite food,in which chicken is marinated overnight with all the Indian spices  and cooked on dum …..hope u all like this… :)


For the Masala

Bayleaf 3 no

green cardamom 6-7no

Cinnamon 2no

Pepper corn 6no

Star anise 2 no

cloves 8-9 no

Shahizeera 1tsp

Dagad phool

Mace 2 no

Grind all the above mentioned masala into fine powder

For Marination

1/2 kg chicken,cut into slightly bigger pieces

1 tsp jeera pwd

1  tsp coriander pwd

2 tsp ginger-garlic paste

2 tsp chilli pwd

1tsp turmeric pwd

1 cup curd

salt to taste

Chopped coriander 1 bunch

chopped mint leaves 1 bunch

chopped green chillies 6-7 no

Lime juice 2 tsp

1/2 cup oil

In a wide bowl marinate above mentioned items and store in the refrigerator overnight. Atleast 3-4 hrs of marination is must for a good dumbiriyani.

other ingredients

Basmati rice 3 cups—-soak the rice for 1 hr only then it expands.

water 15 cups

2 tsp oil

bay leaf 2 no

salt to taste

shahi jeera 1tsp

rose water

kewra water

saffron soaked in hot milk

golden fried onions(you can buy in any store or u can prepare at home…..chop the onions length wise finely and deep fry them till they are golden….be careful don’t burn them)



In a big vessel add 15 cups water and bring to boil….once,the water starts bubbling add 2tsp oil,bayleaf ,salt and  Shahi jeera……add the rice and check the salt……Cook the rice till it is only 70% done…..as it is soaked for an hour it takes 3 mts to cook .while the rice is being cooked ,in a non stick biriyani handi spread the overnight marinated chicken as a bottom layer….make sure that big chunks of chicken touches the handi……and cook this on very slow flame….. by this time the rice must be 70% cooked….now with a strainer spread the rice as a second layer……..sprinkle the fried onions on top of rice layer,add dissolved saffron strands in milk,then add ghee,kewra water,rose water and close the lid which is lined  with dough for dum…..Once,everything is added cook on high flame for 4-5 mts,then reduce the flame and cook for 30mts on sim flame…..switch off the flame and immediately don’t mix it up…..better to use spatula to serve the rice to avoid breakage of rice……goes great with raita ….so guys njoy the recipe and have fun :)

note: soak the rice for 1 hr only then it expands

marinate the chicken atleast for 3-4 hrs
