Next, add yogurt, cumin, chili powder, and coriander powder, and salt. After that, add shrimp, and stir for 7 minutes before removing the pan from the heat.

For the rice, you need to soak the Basmati rice for half hour, then drain the rice.

For cooking, add the rice after draining it to 3 cups of boiling water with salt and a few drops of oil. Bear in mind that rice shouldn't be overcooked, so keep the quantity of rice as 1/3 the quantity of water.

Next, bring a pot and cover the bottom of it with ghee, and add part of rice, shrimp, caramelized onions, green coriander, and mint. Repeat this step with the rest of the ingredients.
