How to Make Mutton Biriyani

  • All greens, ginger and garlic should be finely ground and mixed with the yogurt. This is your ground masala.
  • Clean and wash rice and drain.
  • Clean meat and cut into fairly large pieces.
  • Heat 1/2 cup oil and when very hot, add whole spices and finely chopped onions. Fry until onions are a golden brown.
  • Add all of the dry spices and fry for 1 minute. Add the ground masala and tomatoes and fry until the oil separates and comes to top. This takes about 10 minutes.
  • Add meat and cook until meat is browned, turning constantly and slowly adding the other 1/2 cup of oil. When well fried, add water and salt to taste.
  • Cover and simmer until meat is tender for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Add rice and add 4 cups of water. Lower heat when water is almost dried.
  • Cover the top of the mixture with a wet cheesecloth and put the lid on the pot. (Note: Take care not to let the cloth touch the burner).
  • Lower the heat further and cook on low fire until done. Open once or twice and stir gently to bring the bottom up.
  • When done, remove from heat but keep covered until serving.
