Chop and fry the onion till crisp. Boil the peas. Steam the chicken and shred once it is cool. 

To prepare the white sauce, heat the butter in a pan, then add the flour and stir continuously. Add the milk and stir so that no lump is formed. Thicken the sauce and remove from heat.

Preheat the oven at 180 degree C.
Take a oven proof dish. Layer the potatoes over the base and season with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Sprinkle some garlic water. 

Spoon over the white sauce and shake till sauce settles through the gaps of the potato. I have added chopped red chilli too.

Spread half of the fried onions. Arrange the shredded chicken on top. Then add the boiled peas. Sprinkle salt, pepper and some more garlic water. Alternate the layering if required.

Finish with the remaining potatoes. arranged in an even layer and dot with butter and remaining garlic water. Season with salt, pepper and sprinkle some more nutmeg powder.

Bake for 30-40 minutes till the potatoes are golden and tender.
