Method of making chicken pulao
There are many methods of cooking chicken pulao daig, but the most important thing is to cook the rice and chicken separately. This ensures that the chicken is cooked through and the rice is not overcooked.
To cook the chicken, first marinate it in a mixture of yogurt, spices, and lemon juice for at least 30 minutes. Then, heat some oil in a pan and cook the chicken until it is browned all over and cooked through.
To cook the rice, wash it thoroughly and then soak it in water for 30 minutes. Then, drain the water and add the rice to a pot with boiling water. Cook the rice for 10–12 minutes, or until it is tender.
Finally, assemble the dish by adding the cooked chicken and rice to a serving bowl and garnishing with chopped scallions, cilantro, and mint leaves. Serve warm with raita on the side.
