Yours truly decided to cook biryani. So last monday, i cooked chicken biryani using Shan's Sindhi Biryani spice mix that i bought at Mustafa Centre in Singapore months ago. Apparently you can find Shan's Briyani Mix in any Cold Storage Stores in KL/PJ.
The ingredients i used. So just you know i did not follow exactly the cooking instructions written on the box, this is my version...heheee...log on here to know the exact way!
Stir fry the onions and garlic paste with ghee until golden brown then add cut chicken and ginger paste. Cook for about few minutes.
Then i add the small chillies (cili padi), yogurt and Shan's Sindhi Biryani Mix and let it simmer for about 5 minutes and then add about 1/2 cup of plain water.
You add in the tomatoes, coriander leaves and mint leaves and let it cook for a while but don't overcooked the tomatoes and the leaves because we need to add in the cooked basmati in it later...it's nice to have the mint and coriander leaves bau in the rice!
In the rice cooker i cooked 5 cups of basmati rice. When the rice cooked i add to the mix in the pot and let it cook in the pot of a bit and whalla lunch is served.
Sedap! Best eaten with salad and cili kicap - light soya sauce, vinegar, cut cili padi and sliced onions!
