Malabar Chicken Biriyani

Posted by Annita on September 19, 2006

Long back I’ve also had Malabar Chicken Biriyani from the famous Sagar Hotel in Kozhikkode,and I still remember how special and different it tasted.Thanks to Shynee,with her recipe ,now I could recreate that special Malabar taste in my kitchen too.Deepu also loved it and according to him,this was the best biriyani i’ve ever made.

And here goes Shynee’s recipe for Malabar Chicken Biriyani…

Ingredients :-

Basmati Rice – 1 kg
Chicken cut into big pieces – 1 kg
Thinly Sliced Onion- 500 gm
Sliced Tomato – 250 gm
Ghee – as needed
Broken cashew nuts – 1/4 cup
Raisins – 1/4 cup
Curd – 1 cup
Lime – 1 big
Chopped Coriander leaves – 1 bunch
Chopped Mint leaves – 1 small bunch
Curry leaves-2 sprigs
Biriyani Masala Powder – 3 tsp

Rose water – 2 tbsp(optional)
Saffron – 1 gm(optional)
Boiled eggs – 2
Salt – as reqd

For Marinating Chicken

Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp
Chilly Powder – 1 tsp
Salt – as needed

For Grinding

Green Chillies – 100 gm
Garlic – 50 gm
Ginger – 50 gm
Poppy seeds soaked in water for 5- 10 mts – 2 tsp

Grind them together to a coarse paste.Keep them aside


Mix together the ingredients for marinating chicken.Apply the mixture thoroughly on chicken pieces and allow it to stand for half an hour preferrably in refrigerator.

Wash and drain the rice well.Heat little ghee in a pan,and roast the rice for 4-5 mts.Add necessary water(Usually the measurement is like,for 1 cup rice – 2 cups water) and salt into it,cook rice till soft and all the water is absorbed.Spread the rice in a flat serving dish,and sprinkle 3-4 drops of lime juice, allow it to cool.

Heat a little ghee in a pan and roast cashews and raisins till brown and keep it aside.Now add half of sliced onion and fry them until thay are well browned.Add more ghee /oil if needed.Drain them into a tissue paper and reserve .Now into the same oil,add marinated chicken pieces and shallow fry them for a while.Shynee says this can enhance the taste and also make the chicken pieces more firm.

Now heat another vessel and heat ghee/oil(preferrably ghee for more taste,or you can combine ghee and oil together) ,add rest of the onions and saute them till translucent.Mix in tomatoes,salt and the ground paste and saute them for 2-3 mts.Stir in curd and lemon juice and saute until oil seperates.Now add fried chicken pieces,mix well,cover and cook.

When it is half done,add Coriander leaves,Mint leaves,curry leaves and 2 tsp Biriyani masala powder.Mix and allow the chicken to cook well in medium heat,until all water is absorbed and chicken pieces are coated with gravy.Switch off the stove.

Take a big vessel,spread chicken pieces along with the gravy in the bottom.Now add one layer of cooked rice over chicken.Sprinkle a little biriyani masala powder,fried onions,cashews, raisins and saffron(mixed in rosewater).Repeat the same for 2 more layers with chicken ,rice and fried cashew-raisins-onions etc.Seal the vessel with aluminium foil and bake it for 15 mts(150 degree celsius).Mix thoroughly and serve hot with whole boiled eggs (in the middle),Onion Raita ,Pickle and Pappad.

Thanks again Shynee,for this very special Malabar Biriyani recipe.I can’t wait to prepare it again.

  9. jshree menon said

    hey annita
    hey i love ur blog…and thnks 4 this wonderful receipe.. i had a q, may sound silly to u.. but cant help asking..
    Approx. how many glass is 1 kg?

    If you are using a standard measuring cup,its almost 4 cups..Hope this helps.

  10. […] For the chicken biryani, I followed Shynee’s recipe. I had seen Anita mention it. Thanks Anita!!! […]

  11. Anisha said

    Hi Annita,
    This sounds great! I am going to try it this weekend. But how much is 50gm ginger/garlic and 100 gm green chillies? And would 500gm of sliced onions be about 2 cups? I haven’t cooked with gm measurements before….


    100 gms of chillies could be 15 or 16 nos..
    50 gms Ginger – a 1 inch size piece
    50 gms garlic – a whole garlic bulb
    500 gms Onion – 4 or 5..
    Again these are just the approximations only…

  12. anjali said

    iv just prepared this.
    waiting for my husband to come home and taste and comment. :-)
    shall update later .

    thanks & Regards,

    Thanks Anjali,and dont forget to let me know your husband’s comment too..

  13. Ponni said

    Hi Annitha,
    Thanks for the recipe. Do you have the recipe for Kottayam style chicken biriyani with a little pineapple flavour and more bright yellowish color than Malabat biriyani?

    I haven’t tasted that pineapple flavored biriyani,Ponni..Let me ask my mom about it..she hails from kanjirappally and will surely let you know if i get the recipe..

    Hi Annita,

    I happened to accidently enter into this site. Seems very interesting… Your receipes are too good. Lately I have been having a tough time cooking… Nothing seems to work out well.. Missing the dishes my mom makes… Now its my turn to let my daughter enjoy food.. she is so so cranky about food… does not seems to like any food.. she does not like anything that i make… She would first taste and give her opinion.. am lucky if she like the food or else… and to my bad luck the cooking is not perfect.. Could you tell me some receipes for my daughter.. she likes more of chicken and fish… Of course, i am starting to try your receipes.


    I’ll try to add some more chicken/fish recipes to my kids choice,Jubi…

  25. Shee said

    pinne Annita, I have to ask you one doubt…Can I follow the recipe of malabar chicken biriyani for veg biriyani? Pls reply

    love and regards,

    Sorry for the late reply,Deepthy…I was soo busy over last 2 weeks…
    I haven’t tried it for veg…but i think it should be good…
    Can u pls let me know abt the results?

  51. ligi said

    “Seal the vessel with aluminium foil and bake it for 15 mts(150 degree celsius)’

    i don’t have a facility for baking!!can u give me an alternative way for the above step!!!

    Just cover the pan tightly and heat in a stove for 10-15 mts in very low heat.


  52. ligi said


  53. Deepthy said

    Sorry for late reply Annita…I made chicken biriyani yesterday.Amazing!!!Next week I will try it using vegetables only.Sure I will let u know the results.

    Annita,do u have any recipe for Thailand eggplants which is also known as Kermit eggplant
    (a variety of eggplant used primarily in Thai cuisine).

    Love and regards,

    This recipe is usually prepared with thai eggplants…most of the eggplant curries other that required baking/roasting/stuffing can be prepared using thai eggplants…

  56. rajeesh said

    Hello Anita

    This was really good. Especially on the taste boosting steps. One and only thing could you please rethink on the quantity of green chilly mentioned ? 100gm for 1 Kg rice. Or do we need to adjust this on the redchilli ?

  57. sonia philip said

    i tried it out and it came out really nice. tnkz a lot for the recipe.

  58. kumari said

    • Vinu said

      why dont you try using pressure cooker instead of oven .use a vessel which doesnt touch the bottom of the pressure cooker and add content to this vessel and keep it inside this pressure cooker which contain little water close the lid (pressure cooker) without tier and leave it for 5 to 7 minutes.

  78. Vinu said

    Hi Annita,

    How are you? How is things going? Yes. I agree with you I am going to make Malabar chicken Biriyani. But I think its better to make African biriyani rather than Malabar, but it is fine we can adjust….Anyway I am expecting some more dishes like pingplotter apple pickle,traceroute sasi fry. This is just for fun but i will try this dish. Thanks

    hi annita,thank u so much for this is very very yummyyyyy…….

  92. Ruby said

    I’ve only been to Calicut once and that too for the infamous Sagar Biryani! Wow I never had anything that tasted better than this one. I’ve have Hyderabadi and THE original Mughlai biryani too. We central travancore people boast about our non-veg dishes, but boy isn’t this something?

    I’ve been searching for the recipe and i got it from here. This was just too good to pass up. Most of my friends are Muslims and they loved it!

    Big thank you.

    You could almost replicate the Malabar Biriyani receipie (not bosting myself, even being a Malabari and a person interested in cooking I myself cannot make it 100% right, it is that special, it is divine), but I must tell you two major difference from our original Malabar Biriyani :

    1) We don’t use Basmati Rice for Malabar Biriyani, we use “Jeerakashala” or “Gandhakashala” rice variety, which is very small in size and is very fragrant (than Basmati). This makes our Biriyani lot different and tastier than any other Biriyani variety in the world. It is a much costlier variety I must say.
    2) Biriyani Masala – We prepare our own MAsala (either we use in Powder form or we bundle this in a fine cloth and immerse it while preparing so that all that fragarnts are there but the same time you won’t bite into bitter taste of some spices while eating Biriyani). The Ingrediants are : Grampoo, Patta (Cynamon) , Jaadhikka (NutMeg), Jadhipatri (NutMeg Cover -Dried) , Elakka (Cardamom), Jeerakam (Cumin), Perunjeerakam, Shajeera (a black variety which is of sickle shape), Starini, Bay Leaves

    Hope this helps to improve your recepie all the more better.

    Hi Annita,

    Which Biriyani Masala did you use? I have tried a few of them and my biriyani tastes more like Chicken Pulao.

  112. There has never been a better time to dig out your recipe box or whip up a new
    version of an old favorite. The Nu – Wave Oven is a countertop oven that uses infrared technologies to cook
    the meals. Here I shared information of emballage sous vide and machine sous vide.

  120. I’d also like to state that most individuals that find themselves with out health insurance usually are students, self-employed and those that are without a job. More than half of those uninsured are under the age of Thirty-five. They do not really feel they are in need of health insurance since they’re young as well as healthy. The income is generally spent on property, food, in addition to entertainment. Some people that do go to work either full or part time are not presented insurance by means of their jobs so they proceed without due to rising tariff of health insurance in the usa. Thanks for the suggestions you discuss through your blog.

  123. When you do this, you can inform your group that you’re meeting an “old friend” for dinner or drinks and that you will be absent from their activities. You may want to create a story about your “friend” being a long-lost relative or an old college buddy. Regardless, create a plan for getting away from the others in your group, especially if you need to keep your rendezvous quiet for professional or personal reasons.

    I love how biryani are made. For me, they are perfect comfort foods. It has protein, carbs that could render a balance nutrition. I had some biryani last night from Kulcha King and they are awesome. We also get some kulcha and kebab. What is more interesting is the offer they gave us for online-orders.
