Chicken and ladyfinger biryani (chicken aur bhindi ki biryani)

Main Dish
3 servings


Number of serving: 3
== Chicken - 1 kg (chopped into medium pieces).

== Ladyfinger / Okra / Bhindi - approx. 500 gm.

== Fried onions - 1 cup.

== Basmati rice - 2 cups.

== 4 strands of Saffron mixed in 4 tsp lukewarm milk.

== Jeera (cumin seed) powder - 1 tsp.

== Lemon juice - 1 tbsp.

== Salt to taste.

== Yogurt / Curd / Dahi - 6 tsp.

== Ginger + Garlic paste - 2 tbsp.

== Garam masala - 2 tsp.

== Oil - ½ cup.


  • 1. Mix chicken pieces together with salt, garam masala, (ginger + Garlic) paste, dahi. Marinate this for 1 ½ hour.
    2. Add fried onions and keep aside.
    3. Wash and dry the bhindis (ladyfingers). Remove both ends of each bhindi and make a slit in the center.
    4. Heat some oil in a kadai (oak). And fry together the jeera powder, salt and bhindis until golden brown in colour. Unload and keep aside.
    5. Soak the basmati rice in water for 15 minutes. Cook the rice in salted water till only half tender. Drain water and keep aside.
    6. Assemble the Biryani: Take a big size, thick bottomed pan with lid. The pan should be big enough to fit the rice and the meat and should have enough space for the rice to swell. Place the marinated chicken at the bottom of the pan with all the marinate. Spread half of the half-cooked rice over this chicken. Place the fried bhindi (ladyfinger) over the rice and cover with the remaining rice. Make insertions in the rice layers and pour the saffron solution, lemon juice so that these reach the bottom layer. Cover with lid and seal the rim with something (like flour/atta/maida dough) in order to prevent the steam from escaping. Now place the pan over low heat and cook for 40 - 45 minutes until the rice is tender but not over-cooked.

    Serve the Biryani piping hot.




There is no combination of lady finger and chicken ....if we we add potatoes inspite of ladyfinger in this biryani recepie , then there are chances for biryani to come out good . Otherwise nobody is going to taste it even if bindi is in it.
