Mix all the ingredients and then add the chicken in it. Make sure the mixture is rubbed on all the chicken pieces. Let the mixture sit for about 20-30 minutes so that all the flavors can be absorbed by the chicken. In another bowl, mix milk and saffron and keep it aside.

If the consistency is too think then you can also add some water in it.

  6. In the last step, put the lid on the handi and put the flame on low medium. The step is beneficial t cook the rice so let them cook for 5 minutes. Once done, serve hot and delicious biryani to your guests and family!
