MAKING THE RICE Wash the rice at least four times and rinse. Soak the rice for 15 to 20 minutes. In a pan, add the water, salt, and the spices. Let it come to a boil. Rinse the rice and add to the boiling water. When the water boils again, cover the pan and reduce heat to lowest. Cook for 25 minutes. MAKING THE BIRYANI In a small pan ghee and when hot add the sliced onion. You can use oil if you wish. Now fry the onion until caramelized. This will take around 8 minutes on medium high heat. You must use the remaining ghee or oil from the onion. Take two tablespoons from the caramelized onion and mince it with the garlic. In a larger pan, add the ghee remaining from previously frying the onion, when hot add the chopped onion and stir until light brown. Add the chicken and fry until you see brown patches on the chicken. Now add the garlic and stir for two minutes. Add all the remaining spices to the chicken and stir for 2 – 3 minutes. Pour 1 ¼ cup water to the chicken and let it cook on medium heat for 20 minutes while covered, and stir occasionally. In the assembling pan, add 1/3 the cooked rice in the bottom of the pan, then add the chicken then add half of the caramelized onion. Place the rest of the rice on top of the chicken and spread the rest of the caramelized onion on it. Mix the melted butter with turmeric and sprinkle over the rice. Cover and cook on low heat for 5 minutes.
