Ingredients for the Biryani are as follows:

900g Chicken - cut into pieces
4 medium Onions - cut lengthwise
1 - 2 Tomatoes - chopped or pureed
2 tbsp Garlic paste
1 1/2 tbsp Ginger paste
4 - 5 Green chillies - slit
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1 tsp Cumin Powder
1 tsp Garam masala or Biryani Masala
2 tsp Coriander powder
1 tbsp Lemon juice
2 tbsp Yoghurt
1 handful mint leaves
1 handful chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp Water
1/4 cup oil
8 Cardamom
2 inch Cinnamon stick
6 Cloves
1 tbsp Kalpasi (optional)
Salt to taste
2 1/2 cups Basmati rice (cooked al dente - 70%)
For the Basmati rice all you need to do is wash it, soak it for an hour. Then, in a pot bring water to a rolling boil and add salt, dash of oil, bay leaf, some cloves, some cardamom and a cinnamon stick. Then drain soaked rice and add it to the water and boil until it is almost cooked al dente. Then drain it and keep it aside for when you need to layer it with the masala and chicken.
