Hyderabadi Egg Biryani




Preparation :-

  • Take 3 eggs and hard boil them . Remove its shell and put vertical slits like this.



  • While eggs r boiling wash 1 glass of basmati rice (1/4 kg) and pour sufficient water.

  • Take 2 medium sized onions , chop them add 2 tspns corn flour and deep fry them in oil till golden colour.

  • Take 1/4 cup warm milk and add pinch of saffron strands . Rub it nicely.



  • Now take a bowl add hard boiled eggs , 4 chopped green chillies , 15- 20 mint leaves , 10 strigs of coriander leaves , 1 tspn ginger garlic paste , 1/4 tspn pepper powder , 1/4 tspn shajeera / black cumin , 1/2 tspn chilly powder , 1/4 tspn turmeric , 3/4 tspn salt , 1/2 tspn cumin powder , 1/2 tspn coriander powder, 2 bay leaves , javitri , 5 cardamoms , 5 cloves , 1" stick cinnamon pieces -2 ,1/2tspn garam masala powder, half of fried onions , 2 tbspns oil ( u can use onion fried oil ). Mix all nicely.




  • Now add 1/2 cup curd to the above mixture . Mix nicely and marinate this mixture for 30 mins.

  • In this mean time we need to cook rice. For this take a big bowl add 4 glasses of water , add 2 cloves , 2 cardamoms , cinnamon stick , 1/4 tspn shajeera , 2 tspns oil. Boil this water nicely . When it is boiling add strained rice . Cook till 70% done and strain the rice.

  • Now take a cooker like thick material add marinated egg mixture and adjust it uniformly.



  • The 2nd layer should be half of the cooked rice . Adjust it uniformly.

  • On rice add few fried onions , few mint and coriander leaves . If u want to increase the masala flavour , in a small bowl take 1/2 tspn garam masala powder and add 5 tspns water . Pour1/2 of this water on rice .



  • Now for the next layer again add remaining half of rice.
  • Again on top of rice add fried onions , mint leaves , coriander leaves ,remaining masala liquid and pour saffron milk.




  • Put some exactly fitting lid . If u have any doubt u can put a dough around the radius or tie a wet kitchen towel . On top of it putsome heavy weight ( u can put dosa pan) . This step is to ensure vapour not going out.

  • Put this cooker/ heavy bottomed vessel on stove in very low flame .
  • May be after 15-20 mins u get nice aromatic biryani smell. After 2 mins Switchoff the stove.
  • Open the lid after 5 mins. Carefully mix from the bottom.






  • Hot hot aromatic Hyderabadi Egg Biryani is Ready to Serve with Mirchi Ka salan / Bagara Baingan.

    Hi Preeti,

    I tried ur hyderabadi egg biriyani this weekend. It came out really well...One thing which i later included was 1 tspn of garam masala without which the rice lacked the required spicyness.
    Thank u very much for ur recipie...Now i learnt to make the proper hyderabadi dish (being a hyderabadi, im expected to know it).

    MY WORLD OF RECIPES said...
    Hi Vani , actually i added sufficient whole garam masalas so i thought it is enough for my taste coz we had with masala curry . Any way cooking according to our own taste makes perfect cooking.

    Hi Preethi,
    I'm going to try your egg biryani recipe. I have a doubt if we do as layers isn't the curry going to burn
    MY WORLD OF RECIPES said...
    Hi bhavani , dont worry it wont burn . Just put ur flame as low as possible and after 15 mins switch off stove and after 5 mins u can serve. As the curry has the curd liquid in it and as we are keeping in low flame and as we are using cooker (thick material) it wont burn. Try it and let me know how it turned.

    I've made egg biryani so many times in the past and I always felt it missed the mark. I followed your recipe and I just love the way it turned out. I think marinating the eggs is such a key step. Thank You for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    Hi preethi! your blog looks great with all wonderful recipes. Can we use kesari food color instead of saffron in briyani? will it alter the taste?
