Roasted chicken stuffed with Khushka/kuska/khusqa (Biryani rice)

Roasted chicken is usually stuffed with variety of stuffing. I tried this roasted chicken stuffed with khushka (Biryani rice) and the try was worth it. I stuffed chicken with almost done khushka rice and then roasted it. For roasting chicken I followed the same recipe of poulet roti except for the marination and cooking time (Roasted for 20 at 240 degrees and then 40 min at 200 degrees). Here goes the recipe...


All ingredients of poulet roti
(I used 2 chicken)

For the Khushka:
Basmati rice - 4 cups
Onions (large) - 4 nos
Ginger-garlic paste - 2 tbsp
Tomatoes - 3 nos
Green chillies - 2 nos
Mint and coriander leaves (chopped) - 1 cup
Curd - 1 tbsp
Lime juice - 1tbsp
Red chilly powder - 4 tbsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tbsp
Ghee - 3/4 cup
Salt for taste

Whole spices like:
Cloves - 6 nos
Cardamom - 6nos
Cinnamon - 1 stick
Bay leaves - 2 nos
Mace - 2-4 nos
Star aniseed - 2 nos
Aniseed - 1 tbsp

Marinate chicken overnight (refer poulet roti for marination)
Heat ghee in a broad bottomed vessel, add whole spices and fry till all the aroma is released. Add finely sliced onions and fry till golden brown. Now add ginger-garlic paste and saute for a min. Add chilly powder and give it a stir. Add finely chopped tomatoes and saute for 2 min. Add curd, lime juice, finely chopped mint and coriander, green chillies (slit lengthwise) and stir well.Add garam masala powder, add basmati rice (soaked in hot water for 30min), 8 cups of hot water, salt for taste. Cover and cook till its almost done (not fully done). Stir well and turn off the flame.
Now, Stuff this almost done khushka rice in marinated chicken as much as possible. Continue to cook the remaining rice till its done.
Now roast the stuffed chicken in a preheated oven at 240 degree Celsius for 20 min. Then reduce the oven temperature to 200 degree Celsius and continue to roast for 40 min or till its done. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves and serve it with the remaining khushka rice.

Can garnish with some freshly chopped coriander leaves. Can exclude tomatoes, chilly powder etc. and can prepare a plain and simple khushka rice only with basmati rice, onions and other whole spices.
