Easy Chicken Pulav

Thanks to all who asked about my little boy, and also who sent us good wishes. We are overwhelmed by all the love shown by you. Thank you. He is doing good. We are getting adjusted to the busy schedule with baby. Having my parents here has been a great help. They have been managing everything in the house. I will be joining office back in another one month, so I thought of cooking something once in a while. I wanted to cook something very simple so that I don’t have to stand long hours in front of the stove. So that is how I came up with this pulav.

It is one of the simplest one pot chicken dishes. The pulav comes up absolutely delicious. Not much chopping and you can cook this using just with the standard things from the pantry.

Ingredients:
1 lb(0.45kgs approx) chicken
1 and 1/2 cups basmati rice
1 tbl spn ginger paste
1 tbl spn garlic paste
8-9 curry leaves
1 tea spn coriander-cumin powder
2 tea spns chilli powder
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped tomato
2 tbl spn chopped coriander leaves
A pinch turmeric
Oil & Ghee
Salt

Method:
Heat oil and ghee, add onion, ginger paste, garlic paste, curry leaves and fry for couple of minutes. Add tomatoes, salt, coriander-cumin powder, chilli powder, turmeric powder, mix well and let it cook for few minutes.
Add chicken, mix well and then add rice. Mix again. Add about 2 and 1/2 cups of water, cover and cook till done.
Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with a raita or on it’s own.

Serves : 4-5
Preparation time : 30mins

PS: I normally use chicken breasts for all my chicken dishes. They cook very fast. So if you are using any chicken that takes long time to cook, cook it for few minutes before adding rice to it.
