Soak the potatoes in water until ready to use.
In 2 tbsp oil, add the marinated chicken and fry for 3-5 minutes until color changes. Add the potatoes now.

Blend the tomatoes and the fried onions together. Add green chillies and yogurt.

Add this blended mixture to the chicken.
Cook until chicken and potatoes are tender.

Boil the 8-10 cups of water and add the soaked rice. Cook until almost tender and add the frozen peas. Cook for another few minutes and drain it in the strainer. Return the rice to the pot and cover and place on lowest flame on a griddle for 5-10 minutes  and fluff with a fork before serving.
