In a thick bottomed pan, add ghee and add chopped onions. Fry for few minutes till the onion turns slight golden in clolour and thereafter add chopped tomato, green chilly, ginger-garlic paste, biryani masala and little salt as per taste and fry the ingredients for five minutes.
After the masala is reasonably fired, add egg pieces and coriander leaves and mix already cooked rice in the masala. On top of this mixture spread the well-stirred yoghurt.
Keep the pan on very slow flame or on the tawa for ten to fifteen minutes. Close the lid of the pan tightly so that the steam does not escape.
