Instructions

For Masala

  • Marinate mutton by adding
    ¼ tsp turmeric powder,
    1/2 tsp chilli powder,
    1/2 tsp coriander powder,
     ¼ tsp pepper powder,
    ¼ tsp garam masala,
    1 tsp curd,
    1 tsp ginger-garlic-green chilli paste
    Mix well and keep it for at least 20 minutes.

Step 2:

  • After 20 minutes cook the marinated mutton in a pressure cooker by adding 1 glass water until 10 whistles (depends on the Mutton).

Step 3

  • Heat 1 1/2 tsp ghee in a pan, add finely sliced onion and fry it till it turns golden brown. Then take it out from the oil and keep aside.

Step 4:

  • Add 10 raisins and 10 cashews in the same ghee in the pan. Saute for 3 to 5 minutes. Take out from the oil and keep aside.

Step 5:

  • Add some coconut oil(if you want more oil) in the same pan, add remaining two finely sliced onions. Saute well by adding a pinch of salt. When it turns golden brown in colour, add ginger-garlic-green chilli paste. Then keep stirring in a low flame for 15 to 20 min.

Step 6:

  • Add one chopped tomato and cook it by covering the pan until tomatoes become soft and mushy.

Step 7:

  • Add pressure cooked beef in masala in the pan and let the gravy become thick in a low flame. Add chopped coriander and mint leaves.

For Rice:

Step 1:

  • Clean the rice and soak it in water for 20 min. After that add 1 tsp Ghee in a rice cooker and add 3 cloves, a small piece of cinnamon and one bay leaves.

Step 2:

  • Add drained rice and sauté well. I have taken 1 ½ cup of rice(180ml cup). Add water as per the quantity of rice. ( 1 ½ cup of water extra for how much rice you take). Add some lemon juice, it prevents the rice from being sticky. Switch off the cooker when it's almost 90% cooked.

For Dum

Step 1:

  • Add this cooked rice on top of prepared masala as a layer. Put some fried onions, Raisins, cashews, coriander leaves, mint leaves on top of rice. Add the remaining rice on top of that and repeat the same process as above.

Step 2:

  • Normally food colour is used to get a yellowish colour but instead of that, I prefer turmeric. To make a natural food colour, add ¼ tsp turmeric in 2 tsp milk and mix well, then pours this mixture on top of dum.

Step 3:

  • Take an aluminium foil, cover the pan on top then keep the pan lid on top. Keep the flame as low as possible during the whole process of dum.

Step 4:

  • Keep it for 10 min. Open when done, you will feel the yummiest smell.
