Rice Cooker Chicken Biriyani With Saffron Cream

Ingredients for 4-6 servings

½ teaspoon cumin powder
1 cinnamon stick
1 cup plain yogurt, preferably whole milk
1 fresh green chili pepper such as jalapeño or serrano, stemmed
1 lime
1 onion cut into chunks
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 teaspoon mild chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 2-inch chunk fresh ginger, peeled
1 ½ cups basmati rice, rinsed
1 ½ teaspoons coriander powder
3 cups chicken broth (use low-sodium if canned) mixed with ¼ teaspoon garam masala
3 garlic cloves, peeled
3 tablespoons canola oil or ghee (clarified butter)
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro, more for garnish
3 tablespoons chopped mint
6 cardamom pods
6 cloves
Pinch saffron threads mixed with 2 tablespoons heavy cream

For Optional Garnishes:

1 onion, thinly sliced
Big handful cashews
Big handful raisins
Oil for frying


Cut chicken into bite-size chunks: 6 to 8 pieces from each thigh. In a bowl, mix yogurt and powdered spices. Add chicken, mix well to coat, and set aside.

In a food processor, purée onion, ginger, garlic and chili pepper together. Set aside.

In a rice cooker, heat oil in cooking bowl on “cook.” When hot, add onion paste and cook, uncovered, until some liquid has evaporated and paste begins to brown, about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Add rice and whole spices and stir well. Smooth top and arrange marinated chicken pieces over surface.

Gently pour in broth and salt. Cover and let cook until rice is tender and chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes depending on cooker.

When done (or when cooker switches to “warm” function), add saffron cream and mix, making sure to scrape and scoop up bottom layer of rice. Sprinkle chopped cilantro and mint on top and re-cover. Let steam 5 minutes more.

If making garnishes, heat 1 inch oil in a pot until rippling. Add onion and cook, separating rings, until golden brown. Lift out and drain. Add cashews and raisins to same oil and cook until cashews are golden brown. Lift out and drain.

Just before serving, squeeze lime over biriyani and mix very well, fluffing lightly. Scoop onto serving platter and garnish with chopped cilantro and fried onions, cashews and raisins.
