Egg Biryani

Hello my dear friends...I have a few things to share with you all today. So it's going to be a long post :)

First, it's a special day today as its our 5th wedding anniversary....5 years of togetherness has given me so many good memories...all these years, together we laughed, cried, dreamt, celebrated, took decisions, faced life...at times had silly fights too...;). We are also blessed with a 2 year old son who means everything to us. On this day, I thank God and also thank my husband for being so supportive, understanding, encouraging and loving...and also for being a wonderful father to our son :)

Next, I would like to thank all of you for your warm wishes on my 100th post. I felt so happy reading the comments and especially one from Ramya of Ramya's Recipe, when she told that I was also among the few who did inspire her to continue blogging..thanx dear :)

Then, I was awarded as Super Hot Cook by Deepthi of Good Food Recipes for the Healthy Snacks Event initiated by her. Thanx a lot Deepthi !!

Ramya of Ramya's Recipe and Sangee of Typical Indian Cooking has passed on some awards...details of which I will write at the end of the post.

Now coming to today's recipe, since its our anniversary I thought of posting something which is my husband's favourite. Egg biryani is actually one of his recent favourite dish. Initially I used to prepare this dish in a lengthy process.Now I have started making it in an easy way in pressure cooker itself very similar to my Soya Chunks Biryani. Still its very tasty, so do try this flavourful biryani :)




What you need?


1 cup Basmati Rice
4 Eggs
1 large Onion chopped finely
2 large Tomatoes chopped
3-4 Green chillies slit
1 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
Whole Garam Masala : 1/2 " piece Cinnamon, 2 Cloves, 2 Cardamom pods,1 Star Aniseed
2-3 tsp Biryani masala
1 tsp Chilli powder or to taste
1 tbsp broken Cashews
1 tbsp Yogurt
few Coriander and Mint leaves chopped
1.5 cup Water
Ghee/Oil
Salt



How to prepare?

Wash and soak the rice for 30 minutes. Hard boil the eggs and remove the shell. Put some slits on the eggs and keep aside.

In a pressure cooker, heat some oil or ghee. Add the Whole garam masala as specified above. Fry until it leaves aroma. Add cashews and let it get slight brown. Now add onions, ginger-garlic paste and saute until onions turn slight brown. Add tomatoes and green chillies, cook until tomatoes turn tender.Add biryani masala, chilli powder, salt and mix well. Now add coriander and mint leaves and the yogurt. Mix thoroughly.

Add the rice and saute for a minute. Now add the eggs and mix carefully keeping the eggs intact. Finally add the water, mix well and cover the cooker. Pressure cook for 2 whistles. Enjoy the hot steaming biryani !!

Notes:
*You can fry the eggs in ghee and then add it.
*You can make the egg masala in a different pan and later add in the cooker along with rice.




Thanks a lot Deepthi of Good Food Recipes for the Super Hot Cook award.



Thanks Ramya Ramya's Recipe and Sangee of Typical Indian Cooking for passing me the awards.





I would like to pass these to some of my friends.
