Szechuan Spiced Chicken Biriyani


1. Take 200g of boneless chicken chunks and marinate them in a tablespoon of Szechuan sauce, salt to taste, and a pinch of turmeric and red chili powder for about 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, rinse 100g of basmati rice thoroughly under running water until it runs clear. Soak the rice in water for about 20 minutes, then drain.
3. In a pan, add a tablespoon of oil and stir-fry the marinated chicken pieces on medium heat until they are properly cooked and browned lightly. Remove the chicken pieces from the pan and set aside.

5. Add the drained rice and 1.5 cups of water to the pan, stir well, and cover. Let it simmer till the rice is cooked and the water is absorbed completely.
6. Now, add the cooked chicken pieces to the rice and mix well. Garnish with chopped cilantro and a tablespoon of lemon juice.
