At that moment turn off the flame, but don't open the lid and keep it aside for 15 minutes, until the rice is completely cooked.Transfer it to a serving bowl and garnish with the fried onion and spices.Delicious neychor is ready to serve with Chicken, mutton, egg or any other varutharacha curries and also with fried items.My combination with ghee rice was Egg masala and Grilled chicken legs (Given below).
  • 2)Grilled Chicken Legs:
    Slit the chicken legs with knife so that it will absorb the masala well. Mix all the above ingredients with very little water and apply uniquely over the chicken legs and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes. Preheat the oven in fan assisted mode for about 5 minutes at 220 C. Keep the oven rack in 3rd level from below and place the chicken at the center and grill for 35-40 minutes in fan assisted grill mode.
