-> Turn up the heat and bring the butter chicken to a slow boil. Cover and cook the chicken to reduce the gravy. Check on the chicken in about 5 minutes and then let it simmer uncovered.

-> In the meanwhile, heat 7 Tbsp refined oil in a frying pan. Add onions and fry til they turn crispy brown. Transfer them to a tissue paper to soak up excess oil. (This will take about 2-3 minutes)

-> Once the gravy has been reduced, layer the butter chicken with crushed fried onions, coriander leaves and a nice thick layer of rice. (Do not mix. Let the layers of chicken, onions and rice be.)

-> Pour the saffron infused milk over the biryani and then add 2 tsp of butter.

-> Put some finely chopped fresh coriander leaves on top of the rice, a handful of fried onions and salt to taste.

-> Cover the lid, turn the heat down and put a heavy object on top of the pot, to ‘dum – cook’ your biryani for about 10 minutes.

-> Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.
