Chicken – I pick drumsticks and thighs, (thigh has the satisfactory meat of bird). Skin removed, and shave off most fat.
Mix all ingredients (except oil) beneath ‘marinade’ and rub into the hen, marinate in a single day for nice consequences, if no longer atleast for four hours in a fridge, protected.
Chop ginger / garlic / tomatoes / onion finely and store separately.
Clean and reduce the coriander leaves.
Wash rice once and soak in cold water for half-hour. Drain, keep aside till required.
Step 1 – Frying Chicken
In a non-stick pan, warmth 1/2 the oil under ‘marinade‘ segment, fry half of at a time, the hen pieces, about 6 minutes on every aspect. Maximum for about 15 mins, as we need handiest about 70% done chook.
Using a slotted spoon, spoon the fried portions onto a plate spread with kitchen towel, to take in extra oil.
Step 2 – Preparing the Garnish
While the bird is getting fried, warmness oil beneath the ‘Garnish‘ phase, sauté the cashew nuts for approximately 2 mins on low flame, till gently golden brown on all sides equally.
In the identical oil, fry the onions till they're crispy. Add salt whilst doing this, this facilitates the onion sweat fast and get crispy.
Keep aside until wished.
Step 3 – Preparing the Gravy
Heat the oil below the ‘Gravy Section‘, sauté the onions along side salt, on medium flame till gentle and caramelised (approximately 15 minutes), even as stirring every so often.
Add ginger and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and sauté till soft and melted, approximately 15 minutes on medium flame.
Step four – Rice
In the cheese fabric, collect all spices beneath the ‘Rice‘ phase and tie it up, that is called `Potli` in
Bring to boil the water in conjunction with salt, ghee and polti, lower the flame. Remove the potli.
Tip over the rice, carry it to boil, lower flame and simmer for 10 minutes till about 50% achieved.
Leave it open, or higher still unfold on a big serving tray and allow the steam to break out and the rice to calm down, this prevents the rice from similarly cooking.
Step – 5 Layering and Baking
Make a dough of the flour and water underneath the ‘dough‘ section, roll into a long strip and practice on the edges of the deep bottomed pan.
Apply 1 tbsp ghee on all sides of the vessel, (use the ghee mentioned within the ‘Garnish‘ segment).
Spread a layer of gravy and a few hen pieces. Top it with a layer of rice and unfold little ghee, cashew nuts and coriander leaves.
Repeat the above step till you've got a final layer of rice, beautify with the closing, coriander leaves, cashew nuts, fried onions and ghee, evenly throughout the pinnacle.
Secure the lid on the dough. In a pre-heated oven, prepare dinner for 30 minutes on medium.
Serve hot with a cooling cucumber raita, lime pickle, masala poppadum and sweetened Indian butter milk (aka Lassi).
You could also difficult-boil eggs, zone them and decorate at the rice.
