A quick and easy chicken pulao that’s made with a few ingredients only!






Prep (10 minutes):

  1. Wash and soak the rice in water.
  2. Slice the onion  
  3. Cut the chicken into strips

Cook (30 minutes):

  1. Heat the oil in a dutch oven or deep cooking vessel and add the onions. Saute until the onions are caramelized and turn a golden brown colour. (5 minutes)
  2. Add ginger-garlic paste, yoghurt, red chilli flakes, garam masala and salt. Cook this masala on medium heat until the oil separates. Add splashes of water to prevent it from burning. (5 minutes)
  3. Add the chicken strips and one cup water. Saute. (5 minutes)
  4. Add the rice along with the water in which it was soaked. Cook on a medium heat until the liquid starts boiling; then, lower the heat and cook until all the water has been absorbed by the rice. Cover the pot and let it rest for a few minutes more. (10-15 minutes)
