Rainbow Biryani

I played with some ingredients, used my creativity, and created this magical recipe in my kitchen. When we invited some guests over for dinner unfortunately their kid HATES potatoes and biryani. Shocking much? But that's true. So I thought of making masala of biryani but semi-dry gravy with boneless chicken, and color the rice to attract the kid. Result? He loved it! Since it was made for kids only, this is less spicy but tastes amazingly delicious. Anyways, lets  begin the recipe.


Boneless chicken 250 grams
Tomatoes 2-3 medium finely chopped
Ginger paste ½ tsp
Garlic paste ½ tsp
Salt 1 tsp
Red chili powder 1 tsp heaped
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Haldi ½ tsp
Garam masala powder ¼ tsp heaped
Oil ¼ cup
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Boiled rice ½ kg (¾ done)
Food color any 3 (I used red, yellow and green)


  1. Boil rice until ¾ done. Add a drop or two of each food color over rice, put it on dum till done. Keep aside. Shuffle them with the spoon to see the colorful result. 
  2. Now, heat oil in a nonstick pan, add garlic and ginger paste. Saute for a bit. 
  3. Add boneless chicken, saute until it changes the color to white. 
  4. Put chopped tomatoes, cook until the water dries. 
  5. Add all the remaining seasonings. Cook till the chicken is tender and cooked. 
  6. Add layer of colorful boiled rice in your serving dish, pour cooked chicken on the top. 
  7. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot. 


  1. Wow. Very creative!

  2. Has anyone tried this so far? How did it turn out to be?

  3. Pakistani Cooking Recipes are the best, using creativity in biryani is genius and love the texture keep it up.
