Egg Dum Biryani

Dum Biryani is famous rice dish where it is made with cooked rice and meat or vegetables arranged in layers and covered tight and cooked on slow heat where the rice gets simmered with the flavor of meat or vegetables and smothered with southern masalas. I have made Chicken Dum Biryani  and Veg Dum Biryani several times, but never tried with Egg. So today I have made Egg Dum Biryani and i would say it is equally delicious and tasty as Chicken Dum Biryani. When those Surprise Guests come and you don't have Chicken handy, this Egg Dum Biryani sure should come for your rescue. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Onion - 1 medium
Green Chili - 2
Clove - 1
Cinnamon - 2
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Cilantro - 2 Tbsp
salt - 1 tsp
oil - 1 Tbsp

Eggs - 4 ( Boiled)
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Onion - 1 medium
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Tbsp
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
salt - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Yogurt - 1/2 cup

Ghee - 1 Tbsp
Cashew Nuts - 10
Saffron Strands - 3
Milk -  1 Tbsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
Cilantro - 1 Tbsp

Preparatory Steps:
  • Wash Basmati Rice drain and keep it aside. 
  • Fry Cashew Nuts in 1 tsp of Ghee into Golden colro and set aside.
  • Cut 1/2 of onion into very thin slices and fry them in 1 tsp oil and set them aside.
  • Warm 1 tbsp of Milk and leave Saffron Strands in it.
  1. Heat the nonstick pan, add 1 tbsp of Oil. Once the oil is hot add clove, cinnamon, cumin seeds. Once they start spluttering, add thinly sliced onions and green chili. Saute for 2 min. Add 2 tbsp of cilantro and mix it well with onions. Add drained Basmati rice and mix it with onions. Add 1 tsp of salt and mix well. Add 4 cups of water and keep the heat in medium and cook for 15 to 20 min until rice is done. ( use fork and fluff up the rice, that's the indication that it is done). Transfer the rice in wide plate, to let it cool. It stops the rice from cooking and helping the each grain to be separated.

  2. Heat Non stick pot and add 1 Tbsp oil to it. Once the oil is hot add finely chopped onions and green chili. Add Ginger Garlic Paste. Once the oil separates from the onion mixture add all the masalas salt, red chili powder, coriander powder and garam masala. Mix everything well together. Now add 1/3 cup yogurt and mix it very well, it becomes like gravy now. Add halved boiled eggs in the gravy and let them simmer for 5 to 10 min.  Taste and adjust all the seasoning now, Egg Gravy is ready.

  3. Now we have to layer the rice and egg curry. Take a heavy bottomed wide vessel and apply ghee at the bottom. Now add half of the rice in vessel. sprinkle some chopped cilantro and fried onions. Add half of the egg gravy curry. Add another layer of rice and top some chopped cilantro and fried onions, remaining gravy. Now add remaining rice and top with fried cashew nuts, come more cilantro fried onions. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of salt on top the rice. add Saffron soaked milk on top. Now Close the vessel tight with aluminium wrap and heat on low simmer heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Keep another heavy vessel on top this pan. After 15 min switch off the stove open hte aluminum foil and mix the rice gently from top to bottom. Now your kitchen must be full of wonderful delicious aroma of Biryani. Transfer to the serving bowl serve hot!
Egg Dum Biryani is Ready now! Yummilicious!
