How to make mutton biryani


To make mutton biryani, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 lbs mutton (lamb or goat meat), cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups basmati rice
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Chopped fresh cilantro and mint, for garnish (optional)

Here is how to prepare the mutton biryani:

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until they are golden brown.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for an additional minute.
  3. Add the mutton to the pot and cook until it is browned on all sides.
  4. Add the garam masala, chili powder, turmeric, and salt and stir well to coat the mutton.
  5. Add the water and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the mutton is tender, about 1 hour.
  6. Meanwhile, rinse the rice in cold water until the water runs clear. Set aside.
  7. In a separate pot, heat the ghee over medium heat. Add the cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom pods, and bay leaf and cook for a few seconds until fragrant.
  8. Add the rice to the pot and stir to coat it in the ghee.
  9. Add 2 cups of water and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
  10. Once the mutton and rice are cooked, layer them in a large pot or casserole dish. Cover the dish with foil or a lid and place it in the oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  11. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and mint, if desired, and serve hot.
