  2. Remove little fried onion in to a plate, which we use later.
  3. Now add the chicken pieces and ginger garlic paste, cover the lid slightly so that the chicken gets sauted with these flavours.
  4. Now add mint leaves and saute it.
  5. Add chopped tomatoes, close the lid slightly until the tomatoes are cooked
  6. Add yogurt, coriander leaves and salt( little less)
  7. Mix them well, add lemon juice and stir it again.
  8. Close the pressure cooker and give two whistles.
  9. Leave it untouched until all the steam is out, only then the oil separates.
  10. Collect this separated oil in a cup which we use later.
  11. In the meantime when the cooker is cooling u can cook the basmati rice with plenty of water until it is half cooked.
  12. Add some mint, salt and elachi to the cooking rice.
  13. Strain all the water.
  1. Now in a large baking tray layer the rice and gravy, repeat it twice and top with rice.
  2. On this pour the oil which we collected and sprinkle little saffron color and few roasted fried onions.
  3. Cover it with Aluminium foil so no air escapes and place in oven.
