  • Rinse rice, Soak rice for 15 mins. Pressure cook it with required water for 3 whistles till rice grain is separated.
  • Add a tsp of olive oil, Fluff it off with a fork, keep aside.
  • In a pressure cooker add chicken along with salt and ginger garlic paste. Saute and cook for 2 mins.

  • Shred the chicken pieces, discard the bone. Now get ready with the chopping of all other ingredients.

  • Lower the flame and cook for few more mins until it all comes together. Bring the mixture to the side of the pan and crack open 2 eggs on other half side of the pan.
  • Add required salt. If you want you can taste check it and add more pepper powder if you want at this stage. Add spring onion green part.
  • Toss it well. Finally add cooked rice, toss it well and cook for another 3mins and switch off.


  • Soaking and cooking helps in grain separated and soft rice.
  • I usually use 1cup:1.5cup ratio for rice : water.
