Chicken pulou - with stepwise picture

Are you planing for a simple dinner or lunch then this is apt for your preference. I added more spices than regular pulou because we like spicy foods. Addition of spices is depend upon you. Other than going for tedious biriyani preparation sometimes we can choose this and this is tasty as biriyani.

Chicken                          : 1 kg
Basmati rice                   : 750 g
Cloves                             : 4
Cinnamon                         : 2 inch stick
Cardamom                       : 3
Pepper corn                     : 8
Cumin seed                       : 1 tsp
Onion                               : 2 (big)
Tomato (optional)             : 1
Pepper powder                 : 1/2 tsp
Green chilli                      : 5 (depend on you)
Chopped ginger                : 2tsp
Chopped garlic                 : 2 tsp
Coriander leaf                  : one hand full
Oil                                  : 2 tbsp
1.     Wash and soak basmati rice for 30 minute
2.    Clean and cut the chicken into small pieces
3.    In a pan add oil then add cloves, cinnamon, cumin seed, cardamom and pepper corn (exept cumin seed and pepper corn I crushed other spices)
4.    Once it started to splutter add onion and fry till it turn golden brown color
5.    Followed by this add green chilli (cut half), ginger and garlic saute well till its raw smell goes away
6.    Add sliced tomato stir well and add chicken 
7.    Saute nicely then addcoriander leaf and 1/4 cup of water. Close the lid and keep in medium flame for 5-8 minute
8.     Add rice and mix slowly (without breaking rice). Add little water up to 1 inch above the rice
9.    Close the lid tightly and cook in low flame for 20 minute
10. Switch off the flame and keep this for 10 minute

11.  After 10 minute open the lid, mix slowly and serve hot with pickle or curd
