Boil rice!

#6. Wash the rice, drain all the water!

#7. In a big pot, take water and fill it half at least, and let it boil! Add 5 tsp of salt( or to your taste), three whole green chilies, two bay leaves, two black cardamoms and a 1-inch long stick of cinnamon, and two tsp of cooking oil, add rice and boil it till you get more than half-cooked rice( rice should not be fully cooked).

#8. Once the rice is done, drain all the water in a colander!

#9. Now in the same pot in which you have boiled rice take half of the rice! Arrange all the meat on top of it! Take the rest of the rice and arrange them on top of the meat!

#10. (At this stage see if your rice is ok to steam on its own! If you think they are tight, pour a tiny bit of water around the corners of the pot!)

#11. Take less than half a tsp of red/orange food color and mix it with a tiny bit of water and pour it on one side of the rice! Close the lid and wait till you see rice being steamed properly! you have to give dum to the biryani!

#12. In the meantime, in a frying pan, heat 1 cup of oil and fry onions in it till golden, pour it on biryani and close the gas and close the lid! If possible cover it with a piece of cloth so that the steam does not go out!

Your biryani is done! You can mix it any which you like! I use a fork to mix or sometimes just hold both the handles of the pot with the lid on and shake it on both sides! The idea is to mix it in a way that rice doesn't break. Eat it with raita or plain yogurt and salad of your choice!
