Method:

  • Prepare Fried Onions: Slice onions thinly and fry until golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

    Marinate the Mutton: Combine mutton with yogurt, fried onions, ginger-garlic-chili paste, ghee, bay leaves, coriander, mint leaves, spices, slit green chilies, oil from fried onions, and salt. Mix well and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.

    Cook the Rice: Rinse rice until water runs clear. Boil with salt, coriander, mint, ginger-garlic-chili paste, ghee, and whole spices until 70% done. Drain and set aside.

    Cook the Mutton: Transfer marinated mutton to a pressure cooker, add 1/2 cup water, and cook until the mutton is tender (one whistle on high heat, then 5-6 whistles on low heat).

    Assemble the Biryani: Remove half of the cooked mutton and masala. Layer rice and mutton in the cooker, adding coriander, mint, fried onions, and saffron water between layers. Top with a final layer of rice and saffron milk.

    Final Cooking: Close the cooker without the whistle and cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes. Serve hot.
