Egg Biryani | Egg Biryani with Jeeraga Sambha rice | Biryani Recipe

Egg Biryani, an another biryani recipe to my collections of biryani.Before moving to the recipe, i have to confess few things about Egg Biryani. This Biryani is not gonna taste like mutton  or chicken biryani,since we don't use any meat here in this biryani, you don't get that meaty flavor in the rice.So all the non-veg lovers out there, keep your expectations low when you try this egg Biryani,but all i can assure you is that this biryani gonna be a really flavorful and yummy. 
Here i've used jeeraga sambha rice for this Biryani, since we like the flavor of jeeraga sambha rice more than the Basmati rice for Biryani. Basmati rice also works well,but use good quality and flavorful Basmati rice,as i said earlier we're gonna make this taste like Biryani without meat,so trying to get the maximum flavor from every other ingredients.In addition to that,use good quality of ghee, garam masala/Biryani masala powder also.Now let's see the recipe,don't be afraid by looking into the long list of ingredients,i have given ingredients separately for rice & masala,so it is long.

  • Instead of coconut milk, you can add water too, i have prepared both ways and it turned out good on either ways.
  • Instead of garam masala, you can use Biryani masala too.
  • After adding egg into the rice, keep it closed for atleast 30 mins to infuse the flavors well.
