Mutton biryani is a delectable dish that is ideal for fans of spice. However, if you’re not a big fan of heat then pulao rice recipes are great alternatives.
The fragrant and aromatic rice, combined with the succulent and flavourful meat, gives biryani a distinct flavour that other rice dishes simply cannot match.
Biryani comes in a variety of flavours, and any type of meat can be used. Chicken biryani is popular and can be found in many Indian restaurants. For vegans or vegetarians, vegetable biryani is a delicious variation.
I love making mutton biryani on special occasions or when we have family around, as it is such an easy recipe to make in large batches.
Eid ul-Adha is the perfect time to make this recipe because you can use up the meat and create this wonderful recipe.
Each bite of this biryani will make your tastebuds burst with flavour. A delicious biryani recipe with a kick of heat.
Ensure that you wash the rice thoroughly in cold water until it runs clear. This will ensure that any excess starch is eliminated.
Once you have washed it properly soak the rice in water for a minimum of 30 minutes. It will also help plump them up, making them more elongated. This will help soften the rice grains, which will help speed up the cooking process.
It is a good idea to time the cooking of the rice and the mutton masala in such a way that they finish cooking at the same time.
This is so when you layer the two together, both are hot, and the steam build-up will help to cook the rice to completion and give you fluffy grains.
The rice should be cooked to about 80%. Overcooking the rice will cause the rice to be mushy and overcooked.
When the rice is layered with the mutton masala it will finish cooking. This will give you deliciously fluffy rice grains.
You can use boneless lamb or mutton if you want to, but it is better to use bone-in lamb. This is because as the meat cooks, the juices of the bones impart a lot of flavour, which will result in a yummy and flavourful biryani.
Garnish with fried onions and freshly chopped coriander. This mutton biryani recipe is the perfect dish to serve at a party or as the main course at dinner time.
