Ingredients

1 sprig cilantro leaves with stems

5 small green chile peppers

1 1/2 cups plain yogurt

9 whole cardamom pods

4 1/8 cups water

3 cups uncooked jasmine or white rice

1/4 cup ghee (clarified butter)

1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces

2 tablespoons ginger garlic paste

5 bay leaves

1 teaspoon salt

1 medium onion, chopped

6 fresh curry leaves (optional)

20 whole cloves

Steps

Step 1

Soak rice for 30 minutes in enough water to cover; then drain.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in cloves, cardamom, and bay leaves. Then stir in onion, and cook until soft, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in chile peppers and ginger paste. Stir in yogurt, salt, and curry, and then place chicken in pan. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally and turning the chicken pieces, until only about 1 cup of liquid remains.

Step 3

Mix in rice, water, and cilantro. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 20 minutes. Check rice after about 12 minutes; if it is dry, add 1/2 cup water, and continue cooking.
