Chole' Biryani

BM # 62 
Week :3 , Day: 2 
Theme: One pot meals/ Combo meals 

For the second under one pot meals, I have a Chole Biryani. This is a very simple and easy Biryani which has an amazing flavor. Since the Chole is with thick gravy it keeps the rice moist, the diluted chutney helps to retain that moisture while baking the rice. You could use this recipe for the chola, it's gets done in a jiffy. The baked onion and ginger tastes heavenly,but if you are not fond of ginger you could minus it. One can pair it with Raita and tikki , like I did as I had some guests, but I am sure just the Biryani too tastes awesome.All in all a very delicios meal.

Chole Biryani

2 cups rice
1/2 recipe chole
Spicy green chutney
Onion rings
Fried green chilly
Ginger jullienes

Boil the rice.
Prepare the Chole.
Make the green chutney and dilute it .
Fry the green chilly.
Cut onion rings and ginger juillines.

Brush a oven proof dish with oil.
Put a layer of rice.
Next a layer of Chole.
Layer up the dish in the similar way, alternating with rice and Chole till both rice and Chole are finished.
Drizzle the chutney on top. Throw in the onion and ginger.
Cover with a foil and bake in a pre heated oven for 10 -15 minutes at 180 deg.
Remove the foil and serve hot with Boondi Raita and Aaloo Tikki.
