  • Fry the sliced onion in the oil until soft and golden brown. Add the chicken or lamb pieces and fry until golden brown. Add the garlic and fry for a minute or two. Now add the yogurt, salt, red pepper and ground cilantro. Simmer over a medium heat until the meat is tender (about 40 minutes).
  • Meanwhile wash and soak the rice in plenty of water for about 30 minutes.
  • Bring 5 cups water to a boil in a large pan and add the rice. Bring back to a boil and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then strain in a colander.
  • Take one half of the rice and put in a large pan. Add the chicken and its juices. Add the remaining half of the rice and s sprinkle the saffron and cardamom and a little more red pepper over it.
  • Cover the pan with a tightly fitting lid and increase the heat for a minute or so to bring back the juices to a boil, then place the pan in a preheated oven at 300°F for about 45 minutes.
