Spiceless Egg Dum Biryani

Egg biryani is a very easy dish to make. It is a special dish with simple ingredients. This is for egg lovers who have gotten bored with egg omelet, curries etc. Also, it is a spice-less dish, so it is perfect for kids as well. It goes well with raita and papad.

  6. Boil water in a deep bottomed pan and add cardamom, cloves, cinnamon stick, ghee, and salt. Leave it for a minute, and add soaked and drained rice and close it with a lid.

  8. Spread the rice over the masala and layer the egg on top. Sprinkle the saffron milk. Pour 1/2 tsp of ghee on top to enrich the flavor.plain-egg-biryani_dual_11plain-egg-biryani_dual_13
  9. To make dum, close it with air tight lid or close it with a regular lid and place a weight on the top and keep the flame as low as possible to avoid burning and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes.plain-egg-biryani_dual_14


  1. Half-cook the rice in water, because when it gets dum, the rice may get overcooked and it will spoil the taste.
  2. Don’t add too much water while cooking the rice. Add the exact amount of water as mentioned above.
  3. The ratio of rice to water should be 1 cup to 1.5 cups.
