Take a pressure cooker and add two teaspoons oil, lightly fry the onion pieces, then add chicken into it and finally the grounded spice mix. Add half a cup of water and wait for three whistles. Now add rice, large potato pieces and minimum a bowl full of yoghurt and some more mint leaves. Close the cooker again and wait for more five whistles. Your tasty and delightful mint-chicken is ready. This is a healthy recipe with less oil. You can make the dish with 40 minutes only.
