Tips to make the best egg biryani recipe:

Basmati Rice: Use good quality basmati rice for the perfect texture and flavour. Cook your basmati rice according to your package instruction.
For this recipe, I cooked my basmati rice in 1:2 rice and water quantity to get fluffy rice.
You may also stir fry the rice in ghee for more flavours.

Hard-boiled eggs: boil the eggs for 7 to 8 mins to get a right consistency egg, then de-shell them and Make 2 or 3 slits.

Homemade ginger garlic paste: Nothing can beat the flavours of homemade ginger garlic paste! Make a fresh batch to get the best taste.

Fresh mint: Mint leaves are an absolute must for biryani that enhances the flavour.

Variations:

Saffron milk: You can use some 2 tbs of saffron-infused milk for flavours.
Brown onions: Fry the onions to a nice crispy golden colour and sprinkle over the rice.
Dried fruits: You can fry the cashews and raisins in ghee and spread over the rice.
