Here's a recipe for Spicy Chicken Biryani:

- A pinch of saffron strands (optional)
- 1/4 cup - Warm milk (optional)
- Fresh cilantro leaves, chopped (for garnish)
- Fresh mint leaves, chopped (for garnish)
- Cooking oil or ghee
- Salt to taste
- Soak the washed basmati rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain and set aside.
- Mix Alco Biryani masala with yogurt (¼ cup) to keep it aside.
- Heat oil or ghee in a large bowl to add the sliced onions and cook. Wait till it is until they turn golden brown. Remove half the onions from the pan and set them aside for garnishing.
- In the same pan, add the ginger-garlic paste. Wait till the raw smell vanishes.
- You can put the cut chicken pieces in the pan to cook.
- Add the chopped tomatoes, biryani masala mix, and salt. Mix well and cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes soften.
- Reduce the heat to low and add the remaining yogurt to the pan. Cover the pan and let the chicken cook in the yogurt-based masala for 10-15 minutes until tender and fully cooked.
- While the chicken is cooking, prepare the rice. Get water to a boil in a large bottom vessel. Add salt and the soaked and drained rice. Cook the rice until it is 70% cooked (still slightly firm). Drain the rice and set aside.
- If you want to use saffron, soak them in warm milk for a few minutes until it turns yellow.
- Layer the partially cooked rice over the cooked chicken in the pan. Drizzle the saffron-infused milk over the rice. Sprinkle reserved fried onions, chopped cilantro, and mint leaves on top.
- Cover the pan tightly with a lid and cook on low heat for about 20-25 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together and the rice to thoroughly cook through and absorb the flavors of the chicken and spices. Alternatively, place the pan in the oven at 350°F (180°C).
- Once the biryani gets cooked, please remove it from the heat and let it sit, covered, for a few minutes to allow the steam to settle.
- Gently fluff the rice and chicken with a fork, mixing them. Serve the spicy chicken biryani hot, garnished with fried onions, cilantro, and mint leaves.
Enjoy your delicious and spicy chicken biryani!
