SCRAMBLED EGG BIRYANI/ FRIED RICE


I should not say that fried rice is synonymous to Biryani as it will be a real insult of one of the most famous dishes of Indian cuisine. But to give you a feel before you actually taste Biryani, I want you to assume that it is somewhat close to fried rice, yet very different and way too tastier. I am keeping this recipe very simple and skipping some of the steps required for making traditional Biryani. This dish requires very less effort as compared to traditional Biryani but still you are not compromising with the taste. A more elaborate and traditional approach is coming up very soon.

INGREDIENTS:-

  1. 1 cup raw basmati rice
  2. 4 eggs
  3. 1 medium size onion (chopped)
  4. 2 spoon chopped coriander leaves
  5. 1-2 sliced green chilies
  6. bay leaf, 2 clove, 1 cardamom
  7. 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  8. 1 spoon ginger paste
  9. 1 spoon garlic paste
  10. 1 tomato (chopped or pureed)
  11. 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  12. 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  13. 1 teaspoon garam masala powder
  14. ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  15. 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  16. 3 spoon olive oil or butter
  17. 1 spoon capsicum (sliced)
  18. 1 spoon grated carrot
  19. 1 spoon green peas
  20. salt to taste
  21. 2-3 onion rings
  22. 4-5 cashews
  23. 4-5 almonds

METHOD:-

Soak the rice in water for 1-2 hr and drain it in colander. Cook it with 2 cups of water and 1-2 drop of oil. Although basmati rice grains tend to remain separate once cooked properly (and that is what we want), do not over cook. Keep aside the cooked rice and let it cool for a while. Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a bowl with little bit of salt. Heat a pan with 1 spoon of oil. Pour all beaten egg batter in the heated pan and stir regularly until the batter gets cooked. Heat a deep pan with 2 spoons of oil (or Ghee/Butter if you do not mind a bit of fat). Add cumin seeds, bay leaves, clove, cardamom and sauté for 1 min or until everything starts looking light brown. Add chopped onion, garlic-ginger paste, and salt. Stir regularly until onion gets transparent. Now add chopped tomato and all the spices ( chili, coriander, garam masala, turmeric, cumin powder ) and cook it for 3-4 min. After that add all chopped vegetables and cook for 5 min or until oil starts separating from the mixture. The mixture is prepared and now we add cooked rice, cooked egg batter and salt in the pan and mix it well. Transfer everything to a baking tray and cover it with foil. Now preheat your oven to 270 degrees F and bake it for 10 min. If you do not wish to use an oven then cover the pan and cook it for 10 min at low heat. Garnish the dish with chopped coriander leaves, roasted cashew, almonds and onion rings. Mouth watering delicious Biryani is ready. Serve it with raita.

Diabetic people can replace white basmati rice, whole eggs and butter with brown rice, egg white and olive oil respectively. The dish will be still tasty, yet healthy for you.
