The video starts with the cooks washing and chopping the flesh of watermelons. Then they transfer the chopped fruit into a big container and start mashing it so that it releases its juice. Once that is done, the cooks strain the watermelon juice into another container to remove the fibre. Then, they wash the chicken pieces. In a big kadhai, the cooks added oil, spices, onions, ginger-garlic paste and prepared the masala. Once it was done, they added the washed chicken pieces to it. After mixing all the ingredients, they added various spices and cooked the chicken a bit. 

Then comes the highlight of the video. The cooks then add a container full of watermelon juice to the chicken mixture. After giving it a good mix, they add basmati rice to it. In the meantime, the cooks prepare a tempering. Once the biryani is cooked, they add the tempering to it.
