Notes:
1.You can prepare 'Biryani Masala Powder' and 'Birista' well in advance . When you prepare birista (fried onions) in advance , just store it in freezer . It will stay good for year. Just take out and use when required.
2.Marinate the Chicken in same Pan in which you will be cooking.
3.If you do not like spices in Rice, then while Making Rice, you can keep all spices in muslin cloth and drop that into water, so that you can easily remove that muslin cloth once rice is done.
4. If you want to colour, then add yellow food colour or few strands of saffron soaked in milk after layering rice.
