Make today for Monday lunch: Dubraj Rice Chicken Pulao tiffin

Working from home has its perks and one of them is being able to enjoy home-cooked, healthy lunches, straight from the oven. This aromatic, tasty can be marinated the night before. And if ghee is a bit hard for you to come across, it can be replaced with butter.  


Dubraj Rice Chicken Pulao

Aromatic rice laced with flavourful chicken.

Cooking time: 30 minutes
Serves 2
Origin: Madhya Pradesh

Ingredients
240g cubed chicken
240g yoghurt
1 green chilli, finely chopped
16g fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
4g fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped, plus more for garnishing
8 peppercorns
1 tbsp/15g butter
1 tbsp/15g ginger-garlic paste
1 tbsp/6g garam masala
1½ tsp red chilli powder
½ tsp green cardamom seeds
1 tbsp/15g ghee
200g Dubraj rice (a short-grained aromatic rice, found mainly in Madhya Pradesh, soaked in water for 30 minutes, drained)
720ml water
salt, to taste

Method
In a medium-size bowl, combine the chicken, yoghurt, green chilli, mint, coriander, peppercorns, butter, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala, red chilli powder, and green cardamom seeds. Refrigerate to marinate for 2 hours.

In a skillet over medium heat, heat the ghee.

Add the chicken along with the marinade. Stirfry for 2-3 minutes.

Add the rice and water. Season to taste with salt. Cook until the rice is soft, the water has evaporated, and the meat is tender. Serve hot, garnished with coriander.
