Eid 2024: How To Make Kathal Biryani In Pressure Cooker At Home


Welcome to the ultimate guide for making Kathal Biryani in a pressure cooker at home for Eid 2024! Follow these simple steps for a delicious meal.


First, soak 2 cups of basmati rice in water for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, chop 500g of raw jackfruit (kathal) into small pieces and marinate with 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp red chili powder, and 1 tsp garam masala.


Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pressure cooker and add 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 bay leaf, and 2 cloves. Once they splutter, add 1 chopped onion and sauté until golden brown.


Next, add the marinated jackfruit and cook for 5 minutes. Then, add 1 cup of chopped tomatoes, 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste, and 1 tsp coriander powder. Cook for another 5 minutes.


Drain the soaked rice and add it to the pressure cooker. Mix well and add 2 cups of water. Season with salt and add 1 tsp biryani masala. Close the lid and cook for 2 whistles.


Once the pressure is released, open the lid and fluff the rice with a fork. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and fried onions.


For the final touch, place a tawa (griddle) on low heat and place the pressure cooker on it. Let it cook for 10 minutes to get the perfect dum (steam) effect.


Your delicious Kathal Biryani is now ready to be served! Enjoy it with raita and your favorite side dishes.


Pro tip: You can also add a layer of fried cashews and raisins before placing the pressure cooker on the tawa for an extra burst of flavor.
