Chettinad Mutton( Lamb) Biryani.

Oops i missed my blog's first Birthday. I was in India and out of blogging for 3 months, it was painful when i realized i missed my blog's first anniversary. Anyway belated wishes to my blog and hope to have grand celebration for its 2nd anniversary.

Mutton Biryani Recipe with Seeraga Samba or Zeera Samba or Jeera Samba rice. I prefer making biryani with Seeraga Samba rice than Basmathi( many times basmathi rice ditched me by either becoming too soft and messy or rough without enough water). Seeraga Samba rice is more comfortable, it has more flavor and
tastes as good as basmathi rice.

Ingredients for Mutton Biryani  
Mutton Chunks with bone-1/2kg
Seeraga Samba rice-1/2kg
Onion medium sliced-4
Tomatoes medium chopped-3
Mint leaves( washed and cleaned)-1bunch
Corriander leaves( washed and cleaned)-1/4bunch
Thick Curd/ Yoghurt-2tbsp
Turmeric powder-1tsp
Salt to taste

For Grinding- grind the following to smooth paste
Green chilli medium-10 to 12
Ginger piece-1"inch
Garlic cloves-8

For tempering
Green cardamom-3 to 4
Cinnamon stick-1"inch
Bay leaf-2
Star anise/ Annasi poo-1( optional)
Javitri/ Mace/ Jathipoo-1( optional)

Heat oil in a pressure cooker. When oil is hot add the tempering ingredients, when the aroma of spices rise add the sliced onions and fry till light brown. Now add the ground (green chilli, ginger and garlic) paste and fry till the raw smell leaves. Now add the cleaned and washed mutton chuncks and give a good stir for 2 mins. Add the mint leaves, chopped tomatoes and thick curd and stir till the tomatoes are mashed. Add turmeric powder, required salt and cup of water. Cover the cooker with lid and pressure cook mutton for 15 mins. When the mutton is 3/4th  done add enough water for the rice to the mutton mixture and bring the mutton mixture to boil. Add the washed seeraga samba rice, coriander leaves and check the seasoning. Once again cover the cooker with lid and cook the rice along with mutton mixture for 10 mins or until the rice is well done. Serve hot Mutton Biryani with Onion Raita or Brinjal curry or Non-veg Curry of your choice.
