Chicken Majboos Recipe

Majboos is an Arabic rice dish with lamb or chicken.
In the traditional method,they boil water in a big pot and after adding all the spices and onion into the boiling water,they add full chicken.Once the chicken is done, take it out and rice is cooked in the same stock.
But I have changed that method a bit.
Here I am partially frying the chicken first and then cooking the rice and fried chicken together in the same pot.
All Arabic dishes are very healthy;Majboos is a very tasty rice dish like biriyani.You can serve it with raita or any other accompaniment of your choice.I serve it with Pomegranate raita.
