  • How to Make Meat biryani:

    1. To make the sauce:
    2. Deep fry onions and potatoes, separately, until golden brown (the potatoes do not need to be fully cooked at this stage).
    3. Set the oil aside.
    4. Mix all the ingredients (except a handful of onions, to be used later) in a large saucepan, cover and simmer over low heat for an hour, until the beef is tender.
    5. For the rice:
    6. Boil the washed, soaked and drained rice for 25 mins until just cooked (i.e. not mushy) and drain.
    7. Take a big ovenproof dish and make alternate layers with the sauce and rice and ending with the rice.
    8. For the topping:
    9. Heat oil and add all the ingredients except the food color.
    10. When the cumin seeds start to crackle, remove from heat and spread over the top layer of rice.
    11. Sprinkle the top with the remaining fried onions (saved from earlier) and pour the yellow food color over the rice in the shape of a cross.
    12. Cover and place in a pre-heated oven (160 deg C) for 50 mins, until the biryani has heated through.
