Chicken White Briyani/Kozhi Vella Briyani

I never prepared briyanis without tomatoes and i cant even imagine this, my H asks me rarely to make briyanis, unfortunately he asked me to make some briyani today but wat to do coz of  my laziness i have completely forgetten to buy tomatoes from farmer's market yesterday finally i went for making chicken briyani without tomatoes and prepared this white briyani, the final result was amazing and i have completely skipped the food colour and turmeric powder which tends to give some colour to this white briyani, tastewise they tastes excellent and delicious as like the briyani and coconut milk rice we usually make at home..We love it and enjoyed with carrot raita and boiled eggs..Now i know wat to make if i dont have tomatoes at home..

Chicken vella briyani


2cups Basmati rice
3cups Coconut milk
1/2kg Chicken (chopped as medium size pieces)
3nos Onions (chopped lengthwise)
1tsp Ginger-garlic paste
2nos Whole spices (bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon stick, cardamom)
1cup Mint leaves (chopped)
Oil
Salt

For Marination:
1/2cup Yogurt
1/2tsp Green chilly paste
1/2tsp Ginger garlic paste
1tsp Garam masala powder
Salt

For Masala Paste:
15nos Shallots
3nos Green chillies
1tsp Fennel seeds
1tsp Coriander seeds

Marinate the chicken pieces with ginger garlic paste, green chilly paste,garam masala powder, salt and yogurt and let them sit for an hour..meanwhile grind all the ingredients given in the list 'for masala paste' with enough water as thick paste...Soak the rice for 15 minutes, drain the water..fry the rice with a few drops of oil until they get a shiny texture, keep aside..

Heat enough oil in a heavy bottomed vessel, fry the whole spices until brown, now add the chopped onions, ginger garlic paste with salt, saute until the raw smell goes away..now add the grounded masala paste,chopped mint leaves and marinated chicken pieces, saute for few minutes...now add the coconut milk, bring everything to boil...Finally add the already prepared rice, cook in medium flame for few minutes and put the flame in simmer,close the vessel with a lid ,cook until the rice gets well cooked..

Serve hot with any sort of raita..
