Method: (With Step-by-Step Pictures)
Cut the boneless chicken into small cubes.
In a pan boil 2 cup of water, add pepper powder and ginger garlic paste and boil the chicken cubes for 8-10 mins till its cooked. Remove the chicken pieces and keep the stock aside. Shred cooked chicken cubes into pieces.
Add chicken stock, salt and the remaining water to make it to total 2 ¾ cup liquid for boiling rice. I got 1 ½ cup chicken stock. So I took 1 ¼ cup water. Pressure cook the rice. ( I go for 1 whistle. After the whistle immediately remove the cooker from the stove.) Once the steam goes remove the lid and spread the rice on a tray.
Heat the remaining ghee in a pan and add sliced onion.Once onion becomes soft add sliced vegetables. Sprinkle salt and mix well. Cook covered till its cooked stirring in between. Add chicken pieces and mix well. Switch of the stove and add chilli sauce and mix well. Remove it from the pan
On the top of it add the next ¼ th of the rice and repeat the same steps. Continue it for the full rice prepared.Cover and cook for 4-5 mins in low flame. Garnish with spring onion. Serve hot.
