Now you can ask me if this recipe is beginner friendly and I would say surely “YES”.

  • Boneless chicken absorbs all the flavors quickly and needs not much time for marination.
  • Boneless chicken cooks fast and needs no water quantity which is bigger plus.

So all you need to take care of is the rice and here goes the tips fo beginners:

  • Always soak rice for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking.
  • Before you start cooking chicken ensure to heat water in a pot and allow it to boil well
  • Drain the water from the rice and add it to the boiling water. When the rice is soaked for 30 minutes it will take about 5 to 8 minutes depending on the quantity. Keep checking the rice every 2 minutes and when it looks cooked from outside and still grainy inside(you can by pressing rice with fingers or chew it) strain it and keep it aside for layering over the gravy.

Always follow these rules and one day you shall perfect your biryani. “Always remember one thing every expert was once a beginner”. So let’s get to the making of boneless chicken biryani!
