Soak the basmati rice in warm water, which I already did.
Now boil water in a bowl add salt, then add soya and cook it in medium flame for about 10 -12 minutes. Once the soya is cooked and is almost double in size then drain the excess water and rinse it with water to remove raw smells.
Boil water add rice into it and let it boil for 5-6 minutes until 80% done then strain it.
Heat the oil or ghee in a presser cooker. Once it is hot I will add bay leaves, Cinnamon, cloves, cardamom stir it well. Now I will add slice onion and stir the fry until it turns golden brown.
Once onion turns golden brown then I will add ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, salt and chopped tomato then stir it well. Cook for about 3-4 minutes until tomato became soft. Now I will add soya chunks into it and mix it well. Cook for another couple of minutes then add curd, mix it nicely. Now it is time to add 1 cup of water and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Add garam masala, mix it well then add rice into it. Now cover with lid and cook it in low flame for about 8-10 minutes. After 10 minutes open the lid and add some chopped coriander leaves, and 1 tbsp ghee. Just mix this gently.
