    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare the croutons: Split the pita breads open and cut into bite sized pieces. Fry in the 1/4 cup peanut oil until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
    2. 2
      Prepare the garlic yogurt sauce: Mix together two of the mashed garlic cloves, the plain yogurt and sea salt to taste. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Prepare the chicken: Rub the chicken with the remaining 10 cloves garlic - getting the garlic under the skin. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat the oil in a large pot and brown the chicken on all sides. Add the lemon juice and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover the pot and simmer for 40 minutes or until the chicken is falling from the bones- turning once during the cook time. Remove the skin and bones and shred the chicken back into the pot with the lemon sauce.
    4. 4
      Prepare the rice: Heat the clarified butter in a large sauce pan and stir in the drained rice. Add turmeric and salt, mixing well to completely coat the grains. Add the water and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Let cook undisturbed until all the water is absorbed, 15-20 minutes.
    5. 5
      Prepare the garnish: Combine the 3 types of toasted nuts.
    6. 6
      Assemble the dish: Place the croutons on a platter. Add a layer of hot rice. Add the chicken and drizzle with lemon sauce. Drizzle the yogurt sauce over all and top with the garnish. Serve immediately.
