Secondly, boil some water add pudina and white zeera to that boiling water add rice when they have boiled then off the fire. Take a bowl, mix the yogurt and biryani masala in that bowl and keep that bowl separate. Then put the kettle on fire add oil and add onion and fry until it turns brown and of the fire. Then take that fried onion in a separate bowl and now the oil that you used for frying the onion will be used now fry the chicken in that oil until it gains a brown to reddish color.
