How to make one pot egg biryani:

  • Take a big heavy bottom vessel. Since it is a one pot recipe so lets use the same vessel for all the steps.
  • In the vessel hard boil the eggs.
  • Take them out and when they are slighlty cool peel them.
  • In the same vessel heat 1 tsp of oil and add 1/2 tsp Turmeric, Salt and 1/4 tsp Red Chilly Powder.
  • Immediately without burning the masala leave the eggs carefully in this masala.
  • Stir fry the eggs on low flame for 1 min so that they get smeared with the masala.
  • Now take them out and keep them aside for later use.
  • In the same pan heat the remaining oil and ghee and add the jeera seeds.
  • When the jeera seeds begin to splutter add the whole spices – bay leaf, green cardamom, moti elaichi (brown cardamom), cinnamom stick and cloves.
  • Stir fry for 30 mins and then add chopped onion.
  • Now medium flame stir fry the sliced onions till golden in color. Do not use high flame or the onions will get burnt and will give burnt flavour.
  • Then add ginger garlic paste.
  • Stir fry for 1 – 2 mins or till the raw smell of the ginger garlic disappears.
  • Now add the chopped tomatoes.
  • Stir fry the tomatoes on medium flame till they become mushy.
  • Now add all the dry masalas and fry for 1 min.
  • Now add the half of the chopped mint and coriander leaves.
  • Add the soaked rice and add 4 cups of water. The amount of water largely depends upon whether you soaked the rice or not and which kind of rice you are using.
  • Let the rice cook till the rice gets almost cooked. At this point add the eggs. Stir well with a light hand.
  • Garnish with chopped mint and coriander.
  • Close the lid and let the biryani cook on dum and let the rice absorb the flavours.
  • Your one pot egg biryani is ready to be served with onion raita.
