– hot finger pepper – garlic – fresh ginger – full-fat yogurt – Kashmiri chili powder – ground turmeric

Start by whisking together the hot finger pepper, finely minced garlic, finely minced ginger, yogurt, chili powder, turmeric, salt, garam masala, and lemon juice in a large bowl.

Remove the chicken skin from the chicken breast, thighs, and drums, and slice 2 to 3 ¼” to ½” deep incisions on each side.

Place the chicken into the bowl with the spice and yogurt mixture and mix thoroughly to combine. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator.

Add the ½ cup of oil to a large 10-quart Dutch oven pot and fry the onions over medium heat, occasionally stirring until they are brown and crispy, which takes about 15-18 minutes.

Set them to the side on a paper towel to drain any excess. Thoroughly rinse the basmati rice in a fine strainer for several minutes until the water is clear coming out of the bottom.
