Easy Peasy Chicken Biryani! Especially for bachelors and novice cooks!

This quickfix Biryani is a special dedication to all the guys (bachelors) out there who asked me to put up some simple recipes which they could easily make! (I have made a special Label called "Bachelor Cooking" at the bottom of the post so all such recipes can easily be tracked) So I'm gonna keep it short and sweet here. Oh but let me assure you, it's high on flavor and low on labor. Absolutely yummy!! And a new style of posting too, to keep it quick. I know guys don't like to read through a lot in a blog post!

Easy Peasy Chicken Biryani.
Serves 2-3-4 depending on appetite :P Seriously, but with a normal appetite it serves 4.
Recipe by Self.


500 gm Chicken, cleaned.
1 Cup Rice (Basmati, or any will do)
2.5 Cups Water
1 Bay Leaf
2 tbsp Sugar, white or brown.
1 Medium Onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
1 tbsp Pepper Powder
1 tbsp Cinnamon Powder
2 tbsp Nutmeg Powder (Jaiphal)
2 Red Chilies, Dry, Crushed.
1 tbsp Garam Masala Powder
1 tbsp Rosemary Leaves, Dried (Optional)
4 tbsp Ghee/Oil
Salt to taste


That easy!


  1. :-) ok next sunday i will try this

  2. Thanks for the recipe...looks delicious and will definitely give it a try...

    Just wanted to know ... isn't 2 tbsp Nutmeg Powder too much???

    1. It really depends, as in if I am using Nutmeg Powder from the store, 2 tbsp is good enough coz that is the main flavoring going on in the Biryani. I'd say grate about half a Javetri if using fresh!

  3. Hey !!!
    Biryani looks super delicious :) would like to do a small correction nutmeg is jayphal and mace is javitri.

    1. Hi Sana!

      Oh, thanks for spotting that! :) It is an old post! :D Corrected it!

  4. Hello Ashrita !
