Step 1:

Soak rice in water for half an hour.
Take cleaned chicken in a big bowl and add curd and salt and marinate for 1/2 an hour.

Step 2:

In a big kadai pour 4tbs of ghee.Add 3 sliced onions and fry it for some time.Now add a medium sized cinnamon piece,2 cloves,2 cardamom and pulao leaves and saute it.Add handful of cashew,raisins and saute for a drain the soaked rice and add into the pan.Mix it well and saute for some time.Add double quantity of water for one quantity of rice i.e( 1 cup of rice=2 cup of water).Add salt as per taste.When it starts boiling bring the flame to sim and cook for 15 to 20min.cover the lid while cooking.(if cooking in a cooker do not keep the weight.Cook it for 7 to 8 min.)

Step 3:

Take the chopped  coriander leaves,tomatoes,pudina,green chillies,handful of cashews,small piece of cinnamon,2 cloves,khaskhas 1/2 tsp,.Grind everything together in a mixer jar and keep a side(use very little water because the mixture should be thick in texture).Now in a kadai take 3tbs of ghee,add 3 chopped onions and saute till it turns transperent.Add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute.Add the grinded mixture in to the kadai and saute for 2 to 3 min.Add 2tbs of any instant biriyani powder(I use BON).Now add only the chicken pieces from the marinated mixture and mix well for 2 min.At the end add the marinated mixture and cook until its done.Add salt if necessary.Do not add water as the gravy has to be thick.

Step 4:

Take a big vessel.Put one layer of cooked rice ,on that sprinkle some drops of kaser diluted in milk.Now for the second layer should be of chicken gravy.Now put some drops of lemon and again continue doing layers of rice and chicken gravy untill its done.Decorate with fried onions,cashews,raisins and coriander leaves.
