Hot and Spicy Chicken Pulao

This recipe was created one evening, when I was  in haste and the shortest route to dinner was with the left over rice. I didn’t know it would turn out to be a finger-licking dish. Here is the quickest delicious fix with chicken and rice. It’s also ideal for your child’s lunch box.
