Coconut Milk Chicken Biryani | Instant Pot Recipe

This is a new recipe which I tried recently and loved it. Addition of coconut milk with few whole spices gives a nice twist and flavor to the regular IP or pressure cooker Biryani and is prepared under 30mins.  Making a flavorful Biryani can’t get easier than this Coconut Milk Chicken Biryani. If you too are a Biryani lover, then you must try this recipe soon.

Soak rice for 30mins. Drain and keep aside
Step 1- Turn on IP to sauté mode and heat ghee or oil. When the display shows hot, splutter the whole spices (bay leaf, dry red chilies, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, green cardamoms, and cinnamon stick) and add sliced onion

Step 2- Fry the onions until they turn golden brown and then add chicken. Along with chicken add red chili powder, coriander powder, biryani masala, and salt as required. Mix everything and well and fry the chicken for 8mins on sauté mode. Stir in between to avoid sticking at the bottom. The chicken is 80% cooked now


Step 3- Add the coconut milk and 2 ½ cups of water. Add the soaked rice, mint-coriander leaves, and adjust salt as required. Stir gently to mix. Cancel the sauté button and press RICE (low pressure) button. Close the lid and turn the valve to seal position. The default display of time will be 12mins. You will hear a beep once it is done. Let the pressure goes off naturally


Step 4- Open the lid, gently fluff the rice and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve with boondi raita and onion rings
