Drain out and quick rinse with cold water. Add in 1 cup of frozen peas and mix together. Set your pot by placing a little oil at the bottom of the pot, put in a layer of foil, drizzle oil over the foil as well, layer your unfried potatoes to cover the base of the pot. Shake off excess marinade from the chicken and place it on top of the potatoes. Add half the rice into the Biryani marinade.
