Yes , hello .
Welcome back to another session with your was chef at dot com .
Today we're going to learn another Biryani from the coastal region of Karnataka , very popularly known as Baal Biryani .
Dear friends .
This is going to be very unique because we're going to add tomatoes in this and also it's not going to be that spicy .
So let's learn how to make this biryani for this .
Take some oil in a biryani , honey add whole masala and belief add onion .
You know , we are not going to brown the onion but we're just going to them add salt .
Now in this , add some turmeric , green chilies and ginger garlic paste .
Once the raw flavor of this ginger garlic paste is gone .
Look at this onion .
They have sweated , they become slightly soft but not brown in this add tomatoes .
Now these tomatoes , once the biryani is done , these tomatoes will be disappearing .
You know , after you add the tomatoes also add chopped mint chopped coriander chili powder and uh masala or if you want , you can also add a Biryani masala into this .
Now mix all of this and now in this , add the pieces of chicken , OK .
In the Hyderabad , the Biryani , when we make , we usually add little bigger pieces of chicken in this .
They cut a little bit smaller but whatever uh pieces you add is OK .
Now , just mix all of this in this .
We don't add yogurt or anything , but we may want to add a little bit of water .
You know , if you are making a little larger quantity , you don't even need to add water .
But if you're making small quantity of biryani , you can just add some water into this .
Not too much , just one cup of water should be good enough and just spread the chicken in this , just put the lid and let it cook on a slow flame .
Now , we're going to cook the rice .
Now , in this hot boiling water , add just one or two tablespoon of oil salt and the water has to be slightly salty because in the Biryani , the rice , we are going to spread on top .
So we still need a little bit of salt in rice to make it taste good .
And uh if you want , you can also add some jira jira .
But today , I'm not adding anything in this hot water , add rice .
Most of the times we cook the rice till it is 75% .
And you put this hot rice on top of this chicken , which is almost uh coming to a boiling point and you're going to seal this and we're going to let this rice cook in the steam .
And when the rice is cooked to 100% it almost is twice the size of the 75% cooked rice .
You know , I'm going to create one session just explaining you how to cook the rice , 75% and detail explain how to recognize what is 75% cooked or what is 80% cooked .
So that part we're going to do in another session .
So , you know , after this , if you want , you can add a little extra and uh that will make your biryani even more tasty .
And you know , just some saffron just on top .
This will give a very nice uh you know , for a Biryani usually in style of biryani , they don't add saffron the way I'm adding here .
This is more like a and uh other style of method .
But you know , if I don't add this , I don't feel it's like a Biryani .
So I'm just adding laugh we Hyde about this .
We have a tough time when we go and eat Biryani outside because the way they cook the rice is what will be very disappointing at a lot of places .
You know , you want the rice to be like pearls , the way you know , this is going to turn out and you know the stages of uh how the rice will develop is very important .
Once you understand that you will be able to make your rice perfect , you know , a lot of times people write to me that the rice is never perfect .
It is either less cooked or overcooked on this .
You know , just Sprinkle some lime juice .
This is good that will give a very refreshing flavor .
Put the lid on and in fact , I'm going to put the dough and kind of dumb this uh but they just put the lid on and cook and it's up to you , you know how you want to cook when you put the dough and put the lid on your rice will become even more perfect with the steam .
Now , you know , just we're going to open this uh lid and we're going to check , look at this , you know .
You know , we Hyderabad is , we are very particular about our Biryani .
So , you know , they make the rice a little more softer than this .
But even this , you know , it's in between the and then the Hyderabadi Biryani and look at this , you know , once this is done , ah , the aroma is super , super laugh and look at this chicken and the rice .
See , whenever you make a Biryani , one thing is very important that there are three colors .
One thing is a brown , one thing is nice , golden yellow and the other thing is white when you have all these combinations , that's when the Biryani is awesome today , I've got a very good friend of mine , Mr Pravin Sula .
Please say hello to our friends .
And , um , he is a great foodie .
I'm telling you not one restaurant , he's got multiple restaurants and he's got a speciality .
Biryani restaurant in Fremont , California .
It's called Biryani Ball , isn't it ?
Yeah , Biryani Ball in Fremont , California .
And we're going to give him because when I told him that I'm going to make a Biryani in which we're going to use tomatoes .
He said tomatoes .
So , can you please taste our Biryani with tomatoes ?
That tomato is organ ?
You can enjoy the nice flavor of uh tomato with the rice .
It's of how about you ?
Yeah , me too here .
Ah , amazing .
Isn't it amazing ?
Yes , dear , friends .
This Biryani , we made a little bit combination from Hyderabadi as well as we made sure the rice is perfectly like pearls and the masala is nicely flavored with tomatoes .
If you like tomato rice , I'm telling you , you will thoroughly enjoy because this is a great combination between tomato rice and a good Hyderabad biryani .
I hope you enjoyed today's session of learning this Biryani , but do not forget is all about inspiring others to cook .
