      Cook the rice Bring 2 liters to boil in a pot with 1 tsp salt (not provided). Wash the rice at least 3 times and add to the pot. Cook on high flame for 6-7 minutes, strain and keep aside.


      Marinate chicken thighs While the rice cooks add the seasoning for chicken to the thighs, mix well and marinate for 15 minutes.


      Cook the rice in green paste Once the rice is done, heat oil and butter in a non-stick wok on low flame till butter melts, add the green paste and cook on medium flame for 3-4 minutes till it becomes a little dry. Add the cooked rice to the wok and mix well. Check seasoning (add more salt as per taste) and keep aside.


      Pan fry the chicken thighs Heat 2 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan for 2 minutes on medium flame and place the chicken in it, cook for 2 minutes and flip over to the other side, cook for 2 minute more (4 minutes in total) Cook for another 1 minute each on the sides and remove from pan, check for doneness (it should not be pink in the middle, use fork to check).
