How to make Chicken pulao

  2. Heat a heavy bottomed wok, add some ghee/refined oil.
  3. Once heated, add the bay leaf followed by chopped onion.
  4. As the onions turn golden brown, add the marinated chicken and stir.
  5. Lower the flame and cook the chicken with lid on with occasional stirring.
  6. Once the chicken is almost cooked, add the coriander leaves.
  7. Stir and once the masala is almost dry, add the cooked basmati rice. Give it a nice mix.
  8. Put the lid on once more, so that the rice soaks up all the flavour. Give it a last stir and serve.
