Hello Namaskar. How are you? Hope all are doing good. Here all of us are fine. Today I am here with a christmas special called Kappa Biriyani. I had already done the same with beef before. Many has asked to show the same with chicken. People who dont eat beef may not see that video. I have taken 1kg tapioca here. Remove the skin. Cut it to small pieces and wash it well. Cook it well. I am boiling water on the other stove. Always boil lots of water to cook tapioca. Add salt only after the tapioca is 3/4th cooked. Once you add salt, the tapioca will take more time to get cooked. Thats why we dont add salt in the beginning. Once its 75% cooked, add salt and turmeric pdr and cook the rest of it. Then strain all the water from it. You can mash it with your hands after that. I am not doing that. If its well cooked then no need to mash. I am not showing the process here because I have shown that in 2-3 videos before. Now lets marinate our chicken. I have taken 1kg fresh chicken with bones and skinless. I have cut it to small pieces and washed it well. Lets marinate this. In a bowl, add 1.25 spicy chilli pdr, 1tsp coriander pdr. All are measure in tsp. Add little turmeric pdr, 1/2tsp garam masala pdr, 1tbsp ginger garlic paste. You can crush them and add too 1tsp coconut oil, little salt, half of an onion and some curry leaves. Mix all these well. Let me taste the spice level and see. I wont taste this once I add chicken to it. Its perfect. Now add the chicken. Chicken with bones are the best for this. Even beef with bones Mix all these together and keep it aside for 1/2 an hour. I forgot to add 2 green chillies while marinating. Adding them now with 2tsp vinegar. You can substitute vinegar with a tomato if you want. All are meausred in tsp and not tbsp. Keep this aside. Our tapioca is now well cooked. Keep it aside. Now lets cook the chicken. Since I dont have time now, I am going to cook it in a cooker. Place a cooker and add the marinated chicken pieces in it. Cook this on medium flame for a whistle. Once all the pressure has gone, open and check. If its the chicken in Kerala, you may have to cook more. I am not adding water to this now. Water will ooze out from the meat. If you want you may add 1/4cup water Shift this to another stove. Heat a kadayi and lets saute some onions in it. Heat it on medium flame and add 3tbsp coconut oil to it. Once it becomes hot, add 2 onions sliced, 3 green chillies and some curry leaves. I know onions are expensive in Kerala. You can reduce the amount if you want. But It tastes good with onions I have used 2 medium sized onions here. Add salt as needed. We have added salt to the chicken too. So add just little. Now add 1tsp ginger garlic paste or crushed ginger garlic. Saute this well till it fades or becomes light brown. We had added vinegar to the chicken for cooking. Usually you dont have to add vinegar or chicken later. But I am adding 1/2 a tomato after adding the masala. Its optional. If you dont want to add vinegar in the beginning, add tomato here now. You can add 2 tomatoes and avoid the vinegar if you want. Now our onions have become light brown. Reduce the flame and add 1/2tsp garam masala pdr, 1tsp chilli pdr, little turmeric pdr, Add 1/4tsp pepper pdr too. Now no need to add coriander pdr here. Only to the chicken will do. Saute all these well till the raw smell has gone. Now you can add half a tomato to it. Mix well and cook well till the tomatoes are well cooked. Cook on low flame. I cooked the chicken in the cooker for a whistle. After the pressure in it had gone, I added it to the masala mix I cannot find that part in the video while editing. I think the camera might have gone off then. Please excuse me This is the chicken curry gravy we have now. Check the spice level now and make sure salt and spice is ok. You can add accordingly if needed. Now everything is ok here. You can adjust the currys spice level according to the likes in your house. When giving your kids, you can even make the same using chicken breast. Its a full meal. You have chicken as protein and tapioca as carbohydrates. Its a perfect full meal When we had gone for our tour, many said they missed us. Thats why I posted 4 videos of our trip. Those who would like to see it may see. I am happy to hear that some missed us. Now there is a small final part with full of fun in it. That shall be uploaded slowly Our chicken curry has thickened now. Dont make it too dry. At this stage add the cooked tapioca to this. I did not mash the tapioca much. I like bits of pieces in it. I didnt over mash it. Now mix this well and cook it for 2mts. Then we shall take it from the stove. If you want little more gravy, you can add little hot water. I like it dry like this. Lets taste this finally. I have already added salt and cooked the tapioca. Chicken flavours will mix in too. It will be awesome at the end. If you want you can mash it with your hands. Its tasty to have it like this I think. Now lets add some curry leaves, garam masala and coconut oil. Garam masala just for the flavour. Add little coconut oil too. Add the tapioca only after the chickens raw smell and taste has gone. We cooked this in a cooker. But its best to cook on low flame in a kadayi. Only if you are in a hurry, cook it in a cooker. Add the tapoioca only once th raw smell of masala is also gone Thats a very important point. Now add some curry leaves and off it. Thats it. Our tasty kappa biriyani is ready. Lets serve it. I have plated our tasty tapioca with chicken. I sprinkled some chopped onions over it. I have kept a half of a lemon on the side. If you want you can sprinkle it over the tapioca n chicken. Thats all. Its simple and super. All of you do try it out. Its awesome. I make it often. You can make it anytime you want. Just note the points I have mentioned. I have posted on how to make an instant plum cake. You can do the same recipe using kadayi or cooker. You can look into any cake video that I have done. You will know how to make it in a kadayi or cooker Dont forget to check out Veenas Curryworld Christmas special. I have uploaded most of the recipes. I shall post the link in the description box below. Wishing all of you an awesome Christmas. Have fun! Until we meet with my next video, thank you.
