You Must Try This Healthy Masoor Biryani Recipe



Masoor, or whole red lentil, is rich in iron, which builds your hemoglobin levels and wards off fatigue and tiredness. We have added apricots and raisins to the biryani to make it tastier.



Soaking time: 2 hours
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 12 minutes
Baking time: 15 minutes
Makes 4 servings


Ingredients
For the masala
  • 1/2 cup masoor (whole red lentil), soaked for 2 hours and drained
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onions
  • 3 tbsp red paste
  • 1/2 cup potato cubes
  • 3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 dried apricots (kummani/jardalu), soaked and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped raisins (kismis)
  • Salt to taste


Other ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups brown rice
  • 2 tbsp low-fat milk, 99.9% fat-free
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania), to garnish

Method
For the masala

  • Heat a pressure cooker on a medium flame and when hot, add the onions and dry roast on a medium flame till they turn brown in colour. Sprinkle 1 tbsp water if they start burning.
  • Add the red paste and dry roast on a medium flame for a few more seconds while stirring continuously.
  • Add the masoor, potatoes, tomatoes, apricots, raisins, salt and 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
  • Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
  • If the masoor is watery, remove from the pressure cooker and simmer in a non-sick pan till some of the moisture evaporates and the mixture becomes semi-dry. Keep aside.

How to proceed
  • Divide the brown rice into 2 equal portions and keep aside.
  • Put the milk at the bottom of a glass baking tray and spread one portion of the brown rice in an even layer. Spread the masala over it.
  • Spread the remaining brown rice over the masala in an even layer.
  • Cover with an aluminium foil and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 10 minutes.
  • Serve hot, garnished with coriander.
