Preparation

  • recipe preparation icon
    In a bowl, mix yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder, biryani masala, garam masala, and salt. Add the mutton pieces to the marinade and coat them well. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes for quick marination.
  • recipe preparation icon
    In a large pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the soaked and drained Basmati rice and cook until it's 70% cooked (it should have a slight bite to it). Drain the water and set the parboiled rice aside.
  • recipe preparation icon
    In a separate deep pan or pot, heat vegetable oil or ghee over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and sauté until they turn golden brown.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Add the marinated mutton to the pan and cook it on medium-high heat until it's seared and sealed.
  • recipe preparation icon
    In the same pan with the partially cooked mutton, add a layer of half of the parboiled rice.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Sprinkle some chopped mint and cilantro over the rice. Add a little ghee or oil.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Add the remaining rice as the next layer. Again, sprinkle mint, cilantro, and ghee on top.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid to trap the steam and flavors. You can also use aluminum foil to seal the pan tightly.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Reduce the heat to low and cook the biryani on "Dum" for about 15-20 minutes, allowing the rice and mutton to cook together and absorb the flavors.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Once the Dum cooking is complete, gently fluff the biryani with a fork to mix the layers.

    Serve the Quick Mutton Biryani hot with raita, salad, and your favorite side dishes.
