Wash the rice and soak in water for 15 minutes. Cook the rice with water and salt to taste. Spread the cooked rice in a plate to cool. Slice onions. Slice eggs lengthwise in half. Clean and cut chicken into small pieces. Wash, peel and cut the potatoes into quarter pieces. Grind the masala ingredients to a smooth paste.

Heat ghee in a frying pan and fry the onions until brown. Remove half and keep aside. Add ground masala to remaining onions and fry well.
