Step 4: Grill the Chicken

Preheat your grill or oven to 200°C (392°F).
Thread marinated chicken onto skewers and grill until cooked and slightly charred.

Step 5: Prepare the Biryani

In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil or ghee. Sauté sliced onions until they turn golden brown. Add chopped tomatoes and cook until they soften. Layer cooked chicken over the tomato-onion mixture.

Step 6: Layer the Biryani

Layer partially cooked rice over the chicken. Sprinkle some Ma Spices Chicken Tikka Masala blend on top. Garnish with fresh coriander and mint leaves.

Step 7: Dum Cooking

Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid or seal it with dough to trap steam. Cook on low heat for about 20-25 minutes, letting the flavors blend.

Dungar (Smoking the Dish)

To elevate your Chicken Tikka Biryani, try the “dungar” technique:

Heat a piece of charcoal until red hot. Place it in a small bowl and put the bowl in the center of your biryani. Drizzle a little oil or ghee over the hot charcoal. Immediately cover the dish with a lid and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. This adds a delightful smoky flavor to your biryani.

There you have it—a simple yet incredibly flavorful Chicken Tikka Biryani recipe using Ma Spices. With each mouthful, you’ll relish the rich aroma and burst of spices that make this dish truly special. Enjoy your culinary adventure!
