Egg Biryani | Muttai Biryani

Muttai  Biryani
Egg Biryani is an Indian Rice recipe served with mint raita or onion raita.  I have already posted a simple quick egg biryani cooked in electric rice cooker. You might ask why again one more egg biryani recipe. The answer is the below egg biryani is my mom's version and the electric rice cooker biryani is my simplified version. My mom won't use biryani powder still her biryani will be colorful and has lot of flavors  she adds tomato, lemon juice and yogurt to the egg biryani. My mom also marinates and fry the eggs before adding it to biryani. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing my mom's version of South Indian Egg Biryani.

Tips:

  • Adjust green chillies and chilli powder to your taste.
  • Cut the hard boil eggs into two halves instead of quartering eggs, if  it is difficult to marinate and fry the quartered eggs.
  • Finely chopped ginger and garlic can be replaced with ginger garlic paste.
  • Eggs contains some salt, so add salt accordingly for marination.

  2. I never tried the way the eggs are added. For me I just boil and add in. Its lovely how you fried the eggs with the spices. combined and cooked with the rest. Chicken briyani will take a rain check over this flavorful egg version.
