3 glasses rice
4 tsbp salt

Whole garam masala
4 cardamoms
2 anise
1 Mace
8-9 peppercorns

1 cinnamon stick
2-3 cloves
1 tsp shah zeera

Boil the rice with whole garam masala and salt.

Put saffron milk and oil (add colour in the milk if you want).

You can make both simultaneously. (Be careful though)
Don’t overcook the chicken.
