HM’s One Pot Chicken Tikka Rice

Cooking is great, it’s therapeutic, but let’s be honest, it’s also work. We’re all looking for convenient, easy recipes to cook because we just have no time or you also need to watch Netflix. 

I am on a mission to make the easiest recipes that take really little time. Introducing Haurat Mulgi’s one pot recipes! In this series, I’m looking to create easy recipes that are yum using my trustworthy kitchen companion – the pressure cooker!

This weekend, I cooked HM’s one pot chicken tikka rice. It was yum and super simple to cook. Watch the video (yes, that’s right, I made a video and I am going to be making more) below to know how that went. If you’re not a video person (that could be a possibility) here is the recipe.


  • Three sliced onions
  • Cumin seeds
  • Black peppercorns 
  • 1 bay leaf 
  • 1 cardamom 
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon tumeric powder
  • A fistful of hand crushed mint leave
  • A fistful of chopped coriander leaves 
  • 250 gms of marinated chicken (Simple marinade of red chilli, tumeric, ginger garlic paste) or buy marinated chicken from Zorabian Chicken (or any other brand)
  • 500 gms of rice (basically double of how much chicken you’re using)
  • 2 diced potatoes
  • Ghee

How to cook:

  • In a pressure cooker, add two tablespoons of ghee and fry the sliced onions until brown
  • Keep aside 3/4th of the fried onions in a plate
  • With the rest of the onions still in the pressure cooker, add more ghee to the side 
  • Add the cumin seeds, peppercorns, bay leaf and cardamom 
  • Add the hand crushed mint leaves (more the merrier) and stir 
  • To this mixture, add the diced potatoes with red chilli powder, tumeric powder and coriander powder
  • Then add the marinated chicken to the mixture, shortly after toss the chopped coriander leaves
  • After a quick stir, add the washed rice then enough water to cover the mixture 
  • Shut the pressure cooker and let it cook
  • After three whistles, let the pressure cooker cool down. Your rice is ready!
  • Garnish with the fried onions that you’d left aside and serve
