Step 1: Marinate the chicken To start, you’ll need to marinate the chicken. In a bowl, mix together yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder, and garam masala. Add the chicken and mix well to coat. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator for best results.

Step 2: Prepare the rice In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add in the rice along with whole spices like bay leaves, cardamom, and cinnamon stick. Cook the rice until it is 80% done, then drain the water and set the rice aside.

Step 3: Cook the chicken In a large pot, heat some oil and fry sliced onions until golden brown. Add in the marinated chicken and cook until it is browned on all sides. Add in tomatoes and cook until they are softened. Then, add in biryani masala and cook for a few minutes until fragrant. Add in water and let the chicken cook until it is tender and the sauce has thickened.

Step 4: Layer the biryani In a separate large pot, layer the biryani. Start with a layer of rice, then add a layer of the chicken and sauce mixture. Repeat this process until all the rice and chicken is used up. Top with fried onions, chopped mint, and cilantro.

Step 5: Cook the biryani Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and cook the biryani on low heat for 20-25 minutes or until the rice is fully cooked and fluffy. Serve hot with raita and enjoy your restaurant-style chicken biryani at home!
