Anda Biryani Recipe – How to make egg biryani. A simple and easy to make biryani recipe made with egg. A one dish wonder which can be relished on any day, at any time.
Biriyani is basically a rice based dish , rice blended with meat, veggies or egg. You might have already seen my Simple Egg Biryani Recipe-Hyderabadi Egg Biryani Recipe which is pretty simple to make. This Anda Biryani recipe is also pretty simple in making but the only difference is that the rice is cooked along with the masala unlike the other one where I have used the par boiled rice. And yes, use ghee in place of oil for the maximum flavor. Nothing can beat the desi ghee’s flavor. I have used a small amount of ghee to avoid it being heavily laden with fat, but you can always adjust the amount of ghee as per your preference.
As delicious as this simple Anda Biryani recipe is, I also like getting creative. First, I started off by adding a few spices to the onion tomato masala and then the soaked rice was added, and before I knew it, we had a new favorite meal, all balanced perfectly and making full use of flavors of the traditional biryani. To me it seemed more like the tahari than a biryani. The Anda Biryani recipe is a one – dish entertainer for a casual evening, or for lunch on the go. Unlike the other methods where we have to worry about getting the rice right, or the layering it neatly, this Anda Biryani recipe is pretty fool proof if you follow the recipe correctly. Only thing which you will have to be careful is the quality of the rice. You can make this with any kind and just be sure that you add the right amount of water to it. As a general rule you will have to add 2 cups of water to one cup of rice, but that totally depends upon the type and quality of the rice. If you know your rice, then you are all set to go with this Anda Biryani recipe. What more do we need than a power packed Egg with delicious flavors and wholesome meal. Do try this Anda Biryani recipe when you do not know what to make and let me know the results.
Let’s get started with the Anda biryani recipe

- 2 large tomatoes finely chopped

Wash the rice and soak for half an hour.
Heat little oil in a pan and add some red chili powder. Fry the boiled eggs in this oil for couple of minutes. Set the eggs aside.
Heat the ghee in a large enough pan and fry the onions till golden brown.
Add the slit green chili, cloves, cardamom, bay leaf, cinnamon and ginger garlic paste. Cook till the raw smell from the ginger garlic paste has vanished.
Now add in the tomatoes, salt, turmeric powder and red chili powder and cook till the tomatoes are cooked and pulpy. Mix in the spiced boiled eggs now.
Next add 4 cups of water and bring it to a boil.
Add the soaked rice, close the lid and cook on low flame until rice is done - about 15 minutes. Switch off the flame and do not open the lid for another 15 minutes.
