Egg Biryani



Ingredients
Basmati rice 2 1/2 cups
Eggs hard boiled 4
Eggs to make omelet 2
onion 6
tomato 3
garlic 5 cloves
ginger 1 inch piece
green chillies 5
pepper powder 2 teaspoons
coriander leaves chopped 1/2 cup
mint leaves chopped 1 table spoon
curd 2 tablespoons
coconut grated 1/2 cup
ghee 1/4 cup
water 4 1/2 cups
garam masala powder 1 teaspoon
cinnamon stick 1 inch piece
cloves 2
cardamoms 2



How to prepare

Soak rice for 1/2 hour.
Remove outer shell of hard boiled eggs and keep aside.
Chop 1 onion and 2 green chillies. Make an omelet using these and 2 eggs.Cut the omelet into 4 or 6 pieces.
Boil water. Add cinnamon stick,cardamoms and cloves. Add enough salt. Keep it aside.
Blend coconut with curd to get a fine smooth paste.If required add very little water while blending.
Grind together garlic, ginger , green chillies and half of the coriander leaves.

Heat ghee, add chopped onions.When it turns golden, add ground paste. Stir well till the raw smell goes. Then add tomatoes, remaining coriander leaves, mint leaves,pepper powder and cook for a while.Add blended coconut-curd mixture in to this. Add garam masala and enough salt too. Mix well. Make cuts on boiled eggs, put them into the masala and cook for few seconds. Add omelet pieces also in to this.Mix.Check salt.

Pour the previously boiled water (it must be hot) in to this. Then add washed rice. Bring to boil. Reduce flame. Place lid and cook. (see procedure for making ghee rice) When holes appears on top, add 1 teaspoon pure ghee on top and switch off the fire. Keep lid closed till rice is cooked well. After 1/2 hour, mix all the contents. Have with pudina chutney and salad.

If you have any doubt about the amount of water used for cooking, then cook rice separately and add to the mixture as I have described for Chicken Biryani.

  31. Divya dear,
    You can use any coconut milk powder, I mostly used maggi..
    For making garam masala, pls check the recipe index in the left side bar.Click on pastes and powders section.Home made powder is best, I ncver used ready made gmasala powder.. :)
