    • 3 Onion
    • 7 Green Chili
    • 1/2 Small Bowl Coriander Leaves
    • 1 tsp Sugar
    • 3 Bay Leaf
    • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
    • 6-7 Peppercorns
    • 4-5 Cloves
    • 2 Cinnamon
    • 1-Star Raisins
    • 1 tomato
    • 3 tsp Biryani Masala
    • 2 tsp Turmeric Powder
    • 1 tsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
    • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
    • 2 tsp Red Chili Powder
    • 1 tsp Chicken Masala
    • 2 tbsp Ghee
    • Water
    • 2 tsp Milk
    • 3 tsp Butter
    • 2 drop Kewra Water
    • 1/2 tsp Yellow Food Color
    • Salt

    The process to Make Easy Egg Biryani with Potato

    You need to soak Basmati rice in the water for 1 to 2 hours for better results. If you can not soak the rice for a long time and want to make instant Egg Biryani then no issues, you can use normal rice, soak it in water for 20 minutes. In either of the cases, you should cook the rise up to 60%. You will also need fried onion for cooking potatoes, eggs and for garnishing as well.

    • Step 1:- Wash the rice and soak it in water for 20 minutes. Keep it aside. Then take 4 eggs and 3 potatoes, cut potatoes in two pieces. Add potatoes and eggs in the cooker and boil it up to 70%.
    • Step 2:- Now potatoes and eggs are boiled, remove the shell of the eggs & peel the potatoes. Sprinkle turmeric powder, biryani masala, red chili powder, salt and coriander powder on eggs and potatoes. Marinate it. keep it aside.
    • Step 3:- Heat the oil. Add potatoes, fry them well and then add 1 tbsp butter & cover it for 3 minutes. Let the potatoes cook and moist in butter. After 3 minutes, remove the potatoes and add eggs by marking cuts on it. Fry the eggs and keep them aside.
    • Step 4:- Now add green chili in hot oil. Fry well and add the onion. Add a little sugar and fry the onion. Sugar will help to fry onion crisps and develop color in golden brown. 
    • Step 5:- Grind tomato, mint leaves, onion and green chili puree, and add this puree in fried onion. Fry well, so the smell of raw tomato will not be there in gravy. Now add ginger-garlic paste. Give it a good mix.
    • Step 6:- Now add coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, biryani masala and chicken masala in mixture. Mix all together and let it fry well. Add a little amount of water and then add potatoes and eggs. Give it a good mix. Also add fried onion and coriander leaves in the gravy.  
    • Step 7:- Now take 2 tsp of milk, add kewra water and yellow food color in milk. Mix well and keep it aside. This flavorful milk will give an authentic flavor to the biryani.
    • Step 8:- Ok, so let the eggs and potatoes cook well and get an aroma of masala. Start boiling rice for biryani. Before this, you need to soak basmati rice in the water. This is one of the important parts of any biryani recipe. So start boiling water first. Add whole spices in this water, also add 2 tsp of oil. Let the water boil and add washed & water-soaked rice in the boiling water and let it cook up to 60%.
    • Step 9:- Check the rice and drain the water once it boiled 60%. Put it in the bowl and remove whole spices if you want to. Add ghee in this rice and mix it. We already made fried onion for garnishing. If you want to know how to fry onion for garnishing purpose then click here for the recipe.
    • Step 10:- Now everything is ready, let’s start to make layers of biryani before giving it dum. Take one cooker, pour ghee in it and spread the ghee well. Now add bay leaves which we have used while boiling the rice, use of bay leaf will prevent the rice at the bottom from burning. 
    • Step 11:- Add the first thin layer of rice. Then add potatoes, after that, again add a layer of rice and sprinkle fried onion and biryani masala. Now add the third layer of rice and then add eggs. Also add fried onion and sprinkle biryani masala. Now add the last layer of rice, then add leftover fried onion, whole spice which we have used in boiling the rice & pour milk (milk in which we have added kewra water).
    • Step 12:- Take aluminum foil and cover the cooker. Now cover this with a lid and place weight on it, so the biryani will become well cooked and aromatic after dum. Place the cooker on gas and turn on the gas flame. Give dum to the biryani on high flame for the first 5 minutes then turn gas on low to very low flame and cook the biryani for next 20 to 25 minutes. Check after 25 minutes, your egg biryani is ready. Serve it with raita, baigara baingan, mint chutney or salad.
