Of course , you can use vegetable oil , but I like the taste of G , I also added three tablespoons of tomato paste .

I started cooking my tomato paste before anything else changes the flavor and color .

Give that a good mix and then you want to add one tablespoon of cumin .

This is ground human dice .

Um You can use whole cumin if that's what you have on hand .

And then about half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon , one teaspoon of ground cardamom , half a teaspoon of pepper and a few cloves .

I'd say about 4 to 5 cloves should be good enough .

Give your spices and the tomato paste a good mix and let them cook for two minutes and then add some chopped tomatoes .

I chopped about five tomatoes .

You want to stir everything well , and then we're going to cook the tomatoes down .

They need to break down .

And the fastest way to do this is cover your pan or pot .

I cook this for about 10 minutes and then the tomatoes , you'll see the tomatoes start to soften up .

They weren't quite there yet .

So I had to cook them a bit longer .

So for about three more minutes and there we go , the sweet spot .

Next , I added my chicken .

You want to remove the skin and cut it into smaller pieces like I've done here .

Next , I'm adding garlic about four cloves of garlic , a chili and some ginger .

Some ground ginger about one teaspoon of ground ginger .

Give everything a good mix .

I like adding the ginger and garlic last because then the flavors stay intense .

Add about a tablespoon of salt and give that a good stir as well just to mix the salt up a bit .

So the chickens and everything is coated well .

And then finally you want to cover that and also cook it for about 15 minutes until the chicken softens a bit and then add about half a cup of mala or do what I did there .

I used , I used milk with one tablespoon of vinegar because I didn't have any molo on hand .

So that's a quick tip .

If you don't have any mala , it looks funky right now .

But don't worry , it'll all sort out itself in the end .

I , then while the chicken was cooking , I deep fried some onions that was sliced .

If you need a tutorial , that further explains deep frying onions .

I'll link it here .

The onions will be soft initially .

But as they cool , they'll crisp up .

I also added a couple of cubed potatoes and fried them for a bit .

You wanna add your onions , your fried onions to the biryani mix and just give that a quick stir and let everything cook .

Now , we're not gonna put the lid on because we want it to thicken slightly and cook it until add your potatoes and then cook your potatoes until they're soft .

Once your potatoes are soft , you're good to go and your chicken's cooked through .

Obviously , you're good to go time to plate .

I made some rice .

I'll link a tutorial for the rice here and there you go .

A very quick Swahili Biryani that tasted phenomenal .

Needless to say my kids all ate it up with no complaints .

That's it from you guys .

I hope you enjoyed this .
