$$$$ Haandi Biryani $$$$
1-1/2 cups Long grain rice

2 Potatoes quartered boiled

2 Capsicums cut into strips

2 Onions chopped into strips

2 Onions quartered

1 tsp Ginger grated

2 Tomatoes Chopped

1 tsp Garlic grated

1 cup Curd

2 Bay leaves

2 Cloves

1" Cinnamon Stick

2 Cardamoms

4 or 5 Whole Black Peppers

1 tsp Red Chilli powder

1 tsp Garam Masala

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder

2 or 3 pinch Asafetida

Salt to taste

1 tbsp Lemon juice

1 tbsp Coriander chopped

10 to 15 Cashews

10 to 12 Almonds sliced to flakes (optional)

4-5 tbsp Kisan Ghee

How to Prepare:

Wash and soak rice in salted water for 30 mins. Heat ghee in a heavy saucepan. Fry onion strips till crisp, brown, drain, keep aside. Fry cashews till light brown, drain, keep aside. Fry capsicums till tender, drain, keep aside. Meanwhile, heat 6 cups water in a large vessel. Add bay leaves, peppers, cloves, cinnamon, cardamoms, salt. When it comes to boil, drain and add rice. Bring to boil, cook for 8-9 minutes, till rice is just but not fully done. Drains in a large colander, spread in a big plate, cool. Grind quartered onions, ginger, garlic to a paste. In hot ghee, add paste stir fry for 2-3 mins. Add all powdered masalas, tomatoes, mixed vegetables, stir, cook till fat separates. Beat curd, add stir till the boil resumes, cook for 2-3 mins. Add potatoes, stir, keep aside.


grease an oven proof handi well on the inside. Place in half of rice, spread at the bottom. Top with half vegetables lay! er, spread over rice. Mix together fried onions, capsicums, cashews, sliced almond, coriander. Sprinkle half over vegetable layer. Sprinkle half lemon juice all over. Repeat rice to lemon juice layer by layer. Either covers with fitting lid, seat edges with chappati dough, or seat op with a tightly packed foil sheet. Make a small slit for excess steam to escape. Bake in a preheated oven at 130 degrees for 15-20 mins. Break seal at the table to get the most out of the aroma. A handi is a round pot like vessel, with a neck narrower than the base. It may be made of metal or in earthenware. It must be heatproof though. If not available use a deep heavy saucepan.

For a stronger flavored biryani, mix in some powdered mace, nutmeg into rice before transferring to handi.

Prepare handi few hours ahead, and bake just before serving, to organize your time better.

PREPARATION TIME: 1 hour SERVES: 8 servings
