Step-by-step instructions to cook

Prep

Hard boil egg and keep it aside.

Cooking

Caramelize onions in a cooker with ghee.

2

Remove half of the caramelized onions and set them aside for garnishing.

3

Add the remaining ghee to the cooker, followed by bay leaves and marinated chicken along with the liquid from the marinade.

4

Cook for 7 to 10 minutes. Scrape the bottom of the pot to make sure there is no food sticking to the bottom.

5

Layer drained rice over the chicken, add salt and water. Do not stir.

6

Pressure cook for 6 minutes, then fluff the rice and mix with the chicken.

7

Garnish with remaining caramelized onions, saffron-milk mix, boiled egg and cilantro. Serve hot.
