Rinse the basmati rice till the water becomes clear. Then soak it in water for 20 minutes. After soaking, drain the rice and keep it ready.
Take a heavy bottom skillet or pot and melt clarified butter in it.

Now add the ginger slices and Chicken, cook for 15-20 minutes or till chicken turns golden brown before adding the vegetables.

Next, add green chilies and sauté for a second and adjust the seasoning and add more salt if needed.
Add Chicken Stock and once the it starts boiling add the soaked basmati rice and mix it gently.
