Muslim's Chicken Biryani
Clean and wash the chicken pieces. 
Soak basmati rice in water for half an hour. 
Grind the green chillis, ginger and garlic together to a smooth paste.
Heat oil or ghee in a pan, when oil is hot add the bay leafs, cinnamon, cloves and cardamoms and fry until the aroma of spices rise.
Next add the onions to the frying spices and fry till the onion turns golden brown.
Now add the ground ginger, garlic and green chilli paste to the onions and fry till the raw smell of paste leaves.
Add the chicken pieces to the onions and sauté till the chicken pieces are lightly browned.
Add the chopped mint and coriander leaves( reserve some mint and coriander leaves to garnish) to the chicken and stir fry well.
Now add the chopped tomatoes, curd, turmeric powder and required salt to the chicken and saute for few more mins until tomatoes are cooked.
Add 4 cups of water to the chicken mixture, cover the pan with a lid, bring the chicken gravy to boil and check the salt for chicken gravy.
When the chicken gravy starts boiling, drain the soaked basmati  rice from water and add it to the boiling chicken gravy.
Gently stir the rice, until 3/4th of the chicken gravy is absorbed by the rice.
Again cover the pan tightly with lid, reduce the heat to medium and cook the rice for 10 mins or until the rice is tender.
Once the rice is cooked, add the reserved mint and coriander leaves to the Biryani and gently stir the Biryani without breaking the rice and chicken pieces.
Serve hot and spicy Chicken Biryani with Chicken Chalna and Boiled Eggs.
