Upside Down Layered Chicken Biryani


          Biryani is a very popular dish equally enjoyed by young and old alike, be they made of mutton, chicken, vegetable, prawns eggs, etc. Now here is a unique way of serving your favourite Biryani.......... 

          The cooking of rice and mutton / chicken / eggs / prawns / veggies is done separately. It is then assembled in layers in a bowl of your choice and then flipped over on a serving dish. Hence the name Upside Down Biryani. 

          The garnishing is done with chopped coriander & mint leaves, roasted cashewnuts and walnuts, fried onion, sliced onion, sliced tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, etc. This not only gives your Biryani a good visual effect but also makes it very appetizing too. So serve this yummy one-pot wonder along with raita and enjoy with family and friends. 












  • 1 cup Basmati rice, soaked for 30 minutes
  • 500 gms. semi-dry cooked chicken
  • handful of coriander & mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 cup fried onion
  • few fried cashewnuts to garnish
  • onion slices, tomato slices and hard boiled eggs to garnish
  • 1 tbsp. ghee to drizzle











          Pressure cook the rice in 1 1/2 cups water for 1 whistle. Leave aside to cool a bit. Grease  a large bowl of any shape with either melted ghee or butter.

          Layer 1/3 of the boiled rice followed by 1/3 of the fried onions. Arrange 1/2 of the cooked chicken followed by 1/2 of the chopped coriander & mint leaves.

          Now again arrange another 1/2 of the rice , followed by 1/2 of the fried onions. Now in goes the left over portion of the chicken, followed by the remaining coriander & mint leaves.

          The last layer should be of the remaining rice and the remaining of the fried onions. While serving, heat through and flip it over on a serving dish.

          Drizzle the melted ghee / butter and garnish with the boiled eggs, sliced onion, sliced tomatoes, cashewnuts and mint leaves. Serve along with any raita for an enjoyable meal with family and friends.
