✔️ Traditionally what Arabs do is that they take out the chicken from gravy once its cooked and roast it on high flame to get that char look on top of the chicken. They then arrange the roasted chicken on top of the cooked rice while serving. If you are doing this step, it is best to use chicken with skin on. Skinless chicken can also be used.
✔️ Pine nuts can also be added to the rice.
✔️ Adjust the heat according to your preference.
