First, wash the rice nicely and soak it in water for around 20-30 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
For the marinade, combine the chicken pieces with dahi, ginger-garlic paste, haldi, biryani masala, garam masala, red chilli powder, and salt in a bowl. Mix well. Keep it in the refrigerator for a while.
Boil water in a kadhai and add the soaked rice to it. Add bay leaf, cloves, elaichi, a cinnamon stick, and salt. Cook until the rice is partially done.
In a heavy-bottomed pot, add a layer of marinated chicken and top it with the partially cooked rice. Top it with some chopped tomatoes, onions, and coriander leaves. Drizzle oil and repeat the process of layering until it is full to the top. You can even add some saffron strands or kewra water for flavouring.
Cover the pot with aluminium foil and cook on a low flame for 40-45 minutes. Serve hot and enjoy!
