Weekend Chicken Biryani (quick and easy chicken biryani)

Here is a quick and extremely flavourful chicken biryani finished off in a microwave.
Excellent for a weekend lunch or dinner when you want an easy yet tasty biryani.
Here's what you need
2 onions roughly chopped
1 onion cut fine and fried till golden
5/6 garlic cloves
1/2 inch ginger
2 green chilies
small bunch coriander leaves
1/2 packet biryani masala
4 large chicken legs marinated with salt, red chili powder and turmeric.
1 cup rice soaked for half an hour then boiled till 90% cooked.
1 tbs melted butter
1 lemon cut in circles
salt to taste
Start by adding some oil in a pan and fry the thinly cut onion till golden brown.
Remove and keep aside.

Also cook the rice and keep aside for later.

In the same pan you fried the onions add the onions, ginger ,garlic and green chilies.
I have chopped them roughly as I will be making a paste of this later.

Cook till they are soft and light brown, then add your favourite brand of biryani masala.
Saute on low for 2/3 min.
Now add in the coriander leaves and saute another min. Cool for 5 min then blend everything adding very little water.
In the same pan you cooked the masalas add some more oil and saute the chicken till light brown.

Add in the blended masala paste and salt to taste.
Cover the chicken and cook on low till the chicken is cooked and all the water has dried up.
The chicken will get a deep brown colour.

Now take a microwave safe bowl and add half the rice at the bottom, add some melted butter and a little bit of the fried onions.

Add the cooked chicken on top, then spread the remaining rice and again add the melted butter, fried onions and lemon slices.
Cover with a microwave safe lid and microwave for 5 min.
Allow to rest for 5 min before opening the lid, now you are done.
Do try it out you guys ! Its really tasty !
