Whisk the yogurt nicely and keep it aside.
Heat 2 tbsp desi ghee in a pan, add 4-5 cloves of garlic, add 5-6 cloves, a cup of onions and saute.
Now add the ginger and 5-6 green chillies and saute.
Now add the whisked yogurt mixture and saute well.
Cook for a few minutes and once you see the specs of fat coming up, add the chicken pieces.
Add some salt too at this stage.
Cook for a minute and add 2 cups of water and leave it to boil. Use enough of water because the rice will be cooked in this.
Let it simmer for a couple of minutes. When the chicken is cooked, add the rice to the chicken and allow it to cook.
Gently stir the rice because basmati after soaking becomes very fragile.
