How to make Chicken Briyani?

Chicken Savoury: Heat half the ghee in a small frying pan, fry almonds
  until golden, drain. Fry sultanas a few seconds and set aside. Fry peeled
  and halved potatoes until brown, drain and reserve.
  Pour any ghee left in pan into a large saucepan, add remaining ghee and
  fry onion, garlic and ginger until onion is soft and golden. Add chilli,
  pepper, turmeric, cumin, salt and tomato. Fry, stirring constantly for 5
  minutes. Add yoghurt, mint, cardamom and cinnamon stick. Cover and cook
  over low heat, stirring occasionally until tomato is cooked to a pulp. (It
  may be necessary to add a little hot water if mixture becomes too dry and
  starts to stick to the pan.) When mixture is thick and smooth, add chicken
  pieces and stir well to coat them with spice mixture. Cover and cook over
  very low heat until chicken is tender, approx.  35-45 minutes. There
  should be only a little very thick gravy left when chicken is cooked. If
  necessary cook uncovered for a few minutes to reduce gravy.
  Briyani Rice: Wash rice well and drain in a colander for at least 30
  minutes. Heat ghee and fry onion until golden. Add saffron, cardamom,
  cloves, cinnamon stick, ginger powder and rice. Fry stirring, until rice
  is coated with the ghee. Add rose water or essence and salt to hot stock,
  pour over rice mixture and stir well. Add chicken savoury and potatoes and
  gently mix into rice. Bring to boil.
  Cover saucepan tightly, turn heat to a very low and steam for 20 minutes.
  DO NOT lift lid or stir while cooking. Spoon briyani onto a warm serving
  dish. Garnish with the almonds and sultanas and serve immediately.
