Hey guys, here is a super easy scrumptious Fish Biryani that can be cooked in no time. Do try this yummy Biryani and please don't forget to comment, like, share and SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such easy and delicious recipes.
Guys, if you think Biryani can only be made with Chicken and Mutton, you are in for a surprise. You can make Fish Biryani in less than half an hour because fish takes very little time to cook. It is a complete meal in itself and goes well with any raita or salad of your choice.
All you need to do is, marinate the fish (I have used Kingfish in this video) with salt, Kashmiri chilli powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, little ginger, garlic, salt and lime juice and keep it aside for 10 minutes. If you are in a hurry, you can fry it straightaway. Sprinkle some corn flour on the fish and shallow fry it until crisp and keep it aside.
Meanwhile, boil water and add 2 cups of washed Basmati rice with salt, little whole garam masala for the extra flavour and little lime juice so that the rice grains get separated. Boil the rice just for 5 minutes to cook 70% and drain it off to a colander.
Heat a wide vessel with ghee and fry whole garam masala, ginger-garlic, whole green chillies, for 2 minutes. Now add chopped onions and saute until they turn translucent. Add the chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, pepper powder and mix well. Add chopped tomatoes, curry leaves and saute until tomatoes become soft and mushy. Add little water and simmer for 2 minutes. Lower the flame and add yogurt, coriander leaves, mix well and switch off the flame. Add fried fish and swirl it around to coat the fish with the gravy and keep it aside.
In a wide vessel, add some ghee and spread a layer of cooked rice. Now spread half the fish with its gravy. Add another layer of rice, sprinkle some turmeric water instead of the food colour (I never use food colour), some coriander and mint leaves. Add the remaining fish and the remaining rice and follow the same process. Finally add a table spoon of ghee, some coriander-mint leaves, rose water, cover the vessel and cook over very low flame for 10 minutes.
You are ready to dig into the mouth watering fish biryani along with any raita of your choice.
