Or quick Mutton biryani.
Cashews - lightly fried
Smear it well with ghee.
Spread a layer of the cooked rice and sprinkle some biryani masala on it.
Now spread some mutton pieces and gravy all over.
Then spread some fried onions and cashew and cover with another layer of rice.
Continue for at least three layers.
Finish off with a layer of rice finally ... covered with the rest of the onion slices.
Put a heavy lid on and keep on low heat for at least half an hour.
I keep a heavy iron tawa on the heat and keep the cooker on it.
Curd raita goes great on the side with this.
I chopped some onions, green chillies and cucumber real small,
mixed with curd
and added a dash of salt and black pepper powder.
Look at that fragrant bowlful!
Doesn't it tempt you try it out pronto? :-)
A vegetarian version of this biryani is here ... the Kathal Biryani.
