  1. Marinate the Chicken:

    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken pieces with yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala, coriander powder, cumin powder, and salt. Ensure that the chicken is well-coated with the marinade. Allow it to marinate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight, in the refrigerator.
  2. Prepare the Rice:

    • Boil water in a large pot and add salt. Drain the soaked basmati rice and add it to the boiling water. Cook until the rice is 70% done. Drain and set aside.
  3. Layering the Ingredients:

    • In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat ghee. Add the whole spices and sauté until they release their aroma.
    • Add the marinated chicken to the pan and cook until the chicken changes color.
    • Layer half of the partially cooked rice over the chicken. Sprinkle half of the fried onions, chopped coriander, and mint leaves.
    • Pour half of the fresh cream over the rice layer.
  4. Repeat the Layers:

    • Repeat the layering process with the remaining rice, fried onions, coriander, mint leaves, and fresh cream.
    • Drizzle saffron-soaked milk over the top layer for a delightful color and aroma.
  5. Dum Cooking:

    • Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid. Seal the edges with dough or aluminum foil to trap the steam.
    • Cook on low heat for about 30-40 minutes, allowing the flavors to infuse and the chicken to cook tenderly.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:

    • Once done, gently fluff the layers with a fork. Serve the Namkeen Chicken Dum Pukht Rosh hot, garnished with additional fried onions, fresh coriander, and mint leaves.
