Today I’m going to post a Non.Veg item, as its been long time, as well a roti too which will not be disappointment for vegetarians:))
I use to do Biriyani in two method, let me post now 1st method with mutton biriyani, 2nd method will be posted in short with chicken biriyani.
Rice - 3cups (basamthi or ordinary(Recommended basamathi for extra flavour and richness)
Mutton or Lamb - 3/4kg(1kg=2.2lbs)
Onion 1 big
Green chillies -2 big
Gingergarlic paste - 3-4tsp
Biriyani masala - 2tsp
Chilli powder - 2tsp(depends on your spiceness,because we have added greenchillies)
Cloves - 3-4
Cinnamom stick - 1
Bay leaf - 1 big
Water - 6cups
Food colour - a pinch(kesari)
Mint leaves -1/2 bunch(optional- for good flavour)
Ghee or vegetable oil -2 table spoon
Yoghurt- 2 tablespoon,
Tumeric - 2tsp
Salt or Lime Juice
First wash the lamb or Mutton cleanly and marinate the mutton with the list given in marination list.(Let it marinate atleast minimum for 2 hours).
Now grind green chillies, mint leaves (preserve some for garnishing), cloves, cinnamon together, keep the paste aside.
Start frying onion, tomato, and the grinded paste together till the raw flavour disappears. Now add Biriyani masala, salt and marinated meat.
Fry nicely, till the meat turns pale colour, add 2 cups of water and put the weight.
It should take some 5-7whistle to be 80%cooked, off the stove. (Depends on the pan type you have)
Till the pressure settles, lets fry the rice.
In a pan, add 2tsp of ghee, cardomen and bay leaf, slowly drained rice and fry on low flame, till it looses its moistness.
Now measure the liquid level in lamp mixture in cup, add additional required water, rice mixture (eg: if you have 4 cups in lamp mixture, then add 2cup=total 6cups)
Close the pressure cooker, put weight, and give 2 whistles.
Once the pressure settle down, add mint leaves and fried nuts.
After 5minutes, gently stir and serve hot with ratio or chips...
Tip: Correct proportion of water is when you dip your middle finger in dish; water level shouldn't cross the first line in the figure.
Instead of i explaining you, i think you all can enjoy from the link i suggest you by visual demostration....But i fried on pan instead of baking...
