This authentic Indian egg biryani is deliciousness in one pot. Serve it with raita and pappadums for a tasty weeknight meal.
When it comes to biryanis, nothing can beat a good chicken biryani. But whenever I want a lighter version of this meat loaded delicacy, I always turn into a vegetarian or eggitarian. So I’ve come up with my favorite super easy homemade and ultra delicious egg biryani.
The basic cooking process of all the biryanis is very similar. And with the right recipe, anyone can make one easily.
I decided to make biryani masala powder from scratch for this recipe. All you need are a few spices that are very familiar to you, and you use regularly in your cooking. This is the same masala powder I used for Hyderabadi chicken biryani. Add all the spices to the grinder or mortar and pestle, and grind to a coarse powder.
To give the eggs extra flavor, I marinated them in a mixture of yogurt and spices. You can shallow fry the eggs if you’ve time. Otherwise, add it straight to the rice.
To be exact, making this egg biryani is simple, easy and fun. If you want to make a meatless biryani, this is the way to go. Garnish it with fried onions, raisins and cashew nuts for a sophisticated look.
