In a cooking pot, heat oil and saute onions with ginger garlic paste until light pinkish in colour.
Add chicken cubes to the pot along with the other spices one by one. Also add kasoori methi to it.
Mix well and saute until the chicken is done. Also add the veggies of your choice now.

Cover and simmer for 15-18 minutes on a medium high heat. Add in cooked rice and mix well taking care not to break the grains.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with mint raita as i did to your family and guests
An amazingly delish idea by me this festive season for you all. The aromatic rice speaks for itself when it is served to your guests. Made totally my way using spices from my pantry of my choice and liking. Use any number of veggies you wish for this. A complete one pot meal that can be relished on it's own or with a simple mint raita as i did. Stunningly beautiful and aromatic due to the spices used that adorns your dining table with it's neat presentation and looks. Happy Cooking!
