Mutton Biriyani - Ingredients:

Spring Lamb (cleaned and cut into medium size pieces) 1 kg
Yougurt 4 ozs 
4ozs Ghee 
Rice (washed) 500 gms
Onions (sliced finely) 250 gms
Ginger & Garlic (equal amounts crushed) i tsp
Lemon 1 
Cinamon sticks 2 
Cardimons 4-6 
Milk 1/4 cup
Safron 1/4 tspn 
Green Chilies 2-3  
Jeera 1/2 tspn  
Cloves 2-3 
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp 
Salt to taste 
Corriander  to Garnish 
Mutton Biriyani - Directions:
  1. In a large bowl mix the meat, yoghurt, almonds, chopped green chillies, ginger and garlic, salt, and ground garam masala. To the mixture add half a teaspoon each of chilli powder and termeric. Marinate for at least 4-6 hours in the fridge.

  2. Fry the onions in ghee until golden brown and crisp. Drain away any excess ghee and then remove the onions and spread over a large plate. This should keep the onions crispy. Once they have cooled crush the onions with your fingers and add this to the marinated meat mixture.

  3. In a large pan half fill with water and add salt, whole garam masala and one green chilli. Bring this to the boil and add the washed rice and cook until the water boils. Once the water has boiled drain the rice in a colander and rinse with a little cold water.

  4. Grease the saucepan generously with ghee and transfer the meat mixture. Level the surface and now spread the rice evenly over the meat. Squeeze the lemon and pour the juice over the rice.Warm the milk and crush the safron into it. Pour the milf/safron mixture over the rice. Dot generously with ghee. To garnish spread the fried onions and corriander over the rice.

  5. Cover the saucepan tightly. Allow to steam on high heat for about 10 minutes and then lower the heat and cook for another 1 and a half to 2 hours. Before removing the pan from the cookeer ensure that there is no moisture left in the meat. This can be checked by simply listening for a sizling sound. If there is no sizzling then the Biryani is ready.

  6. Biryani is traditonally served with Mirch Salan and Yoghurt Chutney.
