To cook biryani or any kind of rice dish it's better to use a pot with a round bottom.

*Take a bowl and soak the rice in water,  while you prepare the rest.
*Cut the tomatoes into small cubes,
*Slice the onions length wise,
*Prepare garlic and ginger paste,
*Cut the chicken into small pieces (as many pieces as you want) and mix it with yogurt. 

Step 3: Cook the chicken

Take a pot with a round bottom and heat 4 tbsp of soybean oil over medium heat.
Add cinnamon, cardamom and bay leaf to the oil,
After 1-2 minutes, add the sliced onions, (stir frequently for 3-4 minutes, don't let the onions turn brown),
Now, add the chopped tomatoes, garlic-ginger paste and salt,
Finally add the yogurt mixed chicken, spices and mix them very well.

*Wait until the chicken changes color into light brown (this will take around 5-6 minutes).
