Preparation Method :

  • Preheat the oven to 150 °C / 300 °F.
  • Whisk yoghurt in a bowl and divide into two equal portions. Dissolve saffron in milk and cream.
  • Add vetivier drops, mint, green coriander and one portion of yoghurt to this.
  • Boil water in a saucepan and add a bayleaf, a cinnamon stick, 3 green cardamoms, 3 cloves and salt. Add the rice and boil until it is half done. Drain the rice with the whole spices and keep hot.
  • Heat the oil in another saucepan; add the remaining whole spices and caraway seeds and saute over medium heat.
  • Add the onion paste and saute until golden brown. Add the ginger and garlic pastes, red chillies and yellow chilli powder and stir for 15- 20 seconds.
  • Stir in the lamb chops and salt and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add a portion of the plain yoghurt and water ( 250 ml). Stir and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the chops are done.
  • To assemble the biryani, grease a baking dish.
  • Spread half the lamb-mixture, sprinkle half the saffron, yoghurt, mint, coriander mixture and top with half the parboiled rice.
  • Repeat the process until the prepared mixtures are used up. Sprinkle mace powder, fried onions and lemon juice.
  • Mix the butter into the flour; add one egg and enough milk to make a stiff dough. Roll out the dough and cover the rice and lamb mixture with it.
