Biryani with lime

A simple healthy meal, I accompanied raita and meat sambal.

2 cups basmati rice
1/2 tsp salt
Soak the rice with salt and leave for 1/2 hour.

1 1/2 cups chicken cut
1 tsp oil
pinch turmeric
pinch cumin seeds
1 1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tomato
1 onion
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
dry lime or loomi

Heat oil saute the onions, add spices and tomato keep stirring till it becomes a sauce. Add the meat and 2 cups water.

1 carrot grated
fried onion

Mix the meat. Add dry lime, cinnamon, cardamom, drained rice to the meat and don't mix. When it is boiling add the grated carrot cover tightly, reduce the heat to low and cook for 20 minutes. The lid needs to be sealed without holes on the top.


  1. I totally love all types of Biryanis but I have never heard of this version, looks delicious and easy to make. Will bookmark it for sure!
