  • Desolve sugar in 1/2 cup water, add peel and boil gently for 5 minutes or until syrup is thick. Set aside.
  • Heat 1 tbs ghee or oil in a frying pan and fry almonds gently until golden (Watch carefully they brown quick when you turn your head.) Remove from pan once done.

Top with chicken pieces and garnish with reserved almonds. Pour saffron liquid over the rice boarder and serve immediately with yogurt.

  • Boil the rice until 95% cooked. Meaning the grains are just done, fully cooked and not mushy. If you undercook the rice here, the grains will turn hard later after adding to the sugar syrup. Press down a rice grain in between your fingers, it should get mashed well and not be hard.
