Fry for some time and add diced onions. Fry till onions turn brown. The more you fry the onion, the tastier it will be. Close the lid and fry. After onions turn brown, add marinated chicken and mix. Close the lid and let chicken cook on medium flame for 10 minutes. Drain all the water from the soaked basmathi rice and add this rice to the cooker over chicken. Add the rest of 1/2 cup mint leaves, 1/2 cup coriander leaves and mix carefully. Mix carefully or the chicken pieces will be crushed. Here I soaked rice for 1/2 hour. For 1 cup rice, add 1 1/2 cup water. Quantity of water will depend on the type of rice also. Mix. Taste the water and add salt if necessary. Close the lid and cook for 2 whistles. Let it cool down and open the lid.
