    How to make Hyderabadi Egg Biryani :

  • Wash and soak rice for at least 30-40 minutes.
  • For Fried onions: Heat a pan with oil, add the sliced onions and cook in medium heat till turn golden brown. Add cashews in the end and fry too. Stir in the middle so that it does not stick.
  • For Egg masala: Mix all the ingredients under “Egg masala” with little water and add the eggs. Heat a pan with 1 tbsp of butter. Now add the marinated eggs and coat till the eggs get golden brown.
  • For masala: Grind the garlic, ginger, mint, coriander, cashews, coconut (optional), poppy seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, chillies with two tbsp of water into a smooth paste. Now take a big pan, add oil or ghee in medium heat, add the paste.
  • Now add the yogurt, chilli powder, biryani powder and mix well. I always move the skillet away from the heat when adding yogurt which prevents it from curdling.
  • Now after returning the skillet back to the stove, add the rice and salt and water. (Quantity of water to be added is for one cup of rice, it is 1.5 cups of water). Mix well and close the lid tight and keep it on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Now add the marinated eggs, fried onions and chopped mint for garnish and keep it on low for 5 minutes. Drizzle the saffron and milk over the rice and switch off the flame, and keep it closed for another 5 minutes.
