However, the Biryani we make today is a bit different from the original one. With time it changed according to our priority and region.

You can find Hyderabadi Biryani, Lucknow Biryani, Kolkata Biryani, Chettinad biryani, etc. They are a little bit different from each other but the core is the same. So, Sunrise Biryani And Pulao Masala are perfect for any and every type of biryani.

Let’s take a look at the delicious restaurant style chicken Biryani recipe with Sunrise Biryani &Pulav Masala Powder

Wash basmati rice and soak it in water for 30 mins to 1 hour. After that cut onion, ginger, garlic, tomato, and chilli and make a smooth paste. Boil your rice until it is half done then set it aside and let it cool. Now heat a pan and add oil or ghee or both as per your choice. Add the pasta and cook it for a few minutes, then add the protein of your choice and cook it until the oil is separated. If you are using chicken then cooking time will be lesser in comparison to red meats. After your chicken or meat is done, take a large pan and brush it well with ghee. Add half of the rice, then sprinkle Sunrise Biryani And Pulao Masala, and salt. After that, put chicken and again sprinkle Sunrise Biryani And Pulao Masala. Add the last layer by putting the rest of the rice, Kewra water, rose water, Sunrise Biryani And Pulao Masala, salt, and ghee. Sprinkle a little bit of water then cover it and cook it on low heat for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve hot with raita or chaatni.

Ingredients of Sunrise Biryani & Pulav Masala Powder

Sunrise has made an exotic spice mix, especially for Biryani. However, you can use it for Pulao or any other type of mixed rice dish too. Sunrise Biryani And Pulao Masala is made of 15 selected spices which are handpicked and 100 percent hygienic. All these spices are important and sunrise has mixed these spices in a special ratio to bring an authentic flavour.

Coriander seeds – Coriander gives perfect aniseed flavour to your Biryani and is an authentic Indian spice. It helps to balance other earthy flavours of spices and brings a sweet smell to your dish.

Turmeric– A biryani without traditional yellow colour is not biryani and turmeric provides that amazing yellow colour. Moreover, turmeric contains multiple antibacterial properties. So, it is good for our health too.

Brown cardamom – Brown or black cardamom is bigger than the green cardamoms which we usually use in garam masala. It gives this spice mix an extra dimension.

Black pepper – Those who think pepper is only for spiciness they are wrong. It has a beautiful flavor along with heat. It is impossible to season a dish without black pepper. This gives Sunrise Biryani And Pulao Masala both aroma and spiciness.

Cassia leaf – Some exotic spices make sunrise biryani and pulao masala special and cassia leaf is one of those exotic spices to give your biryani a special chef’s touch.

Cinnamon –Cinnamon is one of the most versatile spices because it can complement both sweet and savoury dishes. Garam masala is incomplete without cinnamon, so is biryani masala. Among all spicy and earthy flavours, it is the sweetest one.

Red Chilli Powder – Indian foods are not complete without a touch of heat or spiciness. Red chilli powder helps to bring that heat to sunrise biryani and pulao masala. However, it is totally balanced and even suitable for non-spicy eaters.

Clove – It is a flower bud that smells amazing and people are using this spice since ancient times. This is a very important spice for garam masala as well as biryani masala.

Green cardamom – Green cardamom is the star ingredient of garam masala. It is not possible to give your biryani authentic flavour without this spice. However, the amount or ratio is important and sunrise has created a perfect balance of it.

Fenugreek leaf – Fenugreek is not a common spice for biryani or pulav. However, it is a secret spice for sunrise biryani and pulao masala. Your biryani will be fragrant and tasty with a special touch of sunrise.

Mace – Mace is nothing but the outer part of Nutmeg which keeps the seed covered. It is one of the exotic spices of biryani masala.

Star anise – Star anise is a star-shaped spice or you can say it looks more like a flower than a spice. It brings a deep and aniseed flavouring to your dish.

Nutmeg – A part of Mace which we have already mentioned earlier. It has a light flavour and compliments your dish.
