Method


In a large bowl marinate washed mutton. For marination, to the mutton add 1/2 tspn turmeric powder, 1 tspn red chili powder, brown fried onions, 3 tbspns oil in which you fried onions, ginger, garlic, green chili paste, 2 tbspns lime juice, curd, mint, coriander, biryani masala and salt. Mix well. Set aside the marinated mutton for 2 hours.

Heat oil in a pan. Add cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, shah jeera, 1 bay leaf, mace, 8 peppercorns. Stir it well till the aroma comes. Add marinated mutton. Mix well. Add 2 to 3 cups of water. Mix well with a spatula. Cook covered on medium flame for 20 minutes till oil separates.

Add the salted boiled half cooked rice. If needed add some more water. Pour some oil in which you fried the onions. Sprinkle some fried onions, mint, coriander. Add the food color and saffron, cover the dish and seal the lid with a wet cloth. Place a weight on the lid such as a pot filled with water, so as to prevent the steam from escaping the vessel in which you are cooking the biryani. Cook for 10 - 15 minutes on medium flame. Switch off the flame. Open after 10 - 15 minutes and serve piping hot with buttermilk or salad..
