    Once the rice is 3/4th cooked drain it and keep aside.
    Heat ghee in a deep wok or deep bottom non stick frying pan and fry the sliced onions until golden brown on medium flame setting.

    Add the chicken pieces mix well and let them cook on highest flame setting for 5 minutes and then lower the gas to lowest flame setting cover and let the chicken simmer for about 15 minutes or till the chicken is completely cooked.
