Nepali Biryani

800  Grams- 1 Kg Basmati
1.500 Grams Mutton.
Whole Spice .
8 Large Onions Sliced.
300 Grams Ginger .
200 Grams Thin Whole Garlic.
10-15 Whole Green Chilies.
This is a very unique dish , takes a bit of an effort but well worth the results .You give the mutton one whistle only under pressure along with some whole spice . The idea is to make yakhni and to cook the mutton ONLY 25 % . Don't allow the mutton to cook more. You then cool the mutton , strain . Retain yakhni , and shed the mutton in medium size pieces , getting rid of all bones. The mutton is then salted and deep fried in mustard oil till done , but not crunchy . Fry in small lots.
Next slice onions in lengths and again in small batches fry till golden brown . Set aside.
Cut Ginger like match sticks and fry in small batches till golden brown .
Fry thin whole garlic till golden brown.
Fry green chiles till they begin to change color. Remember to make a gash in them before frying or they will burst.

Now make a paste:
4 teaspoons garlic
2 teaspoons each ginger paste , coriander powder
1 Teaspoon red chili powder ( or more )
1 Teaspoon of jeera powder.
Heat oil , add 1 teaspoon jeera , when it splutters add 1 chopped onion , when it's brown add the rice , fry the rice 2-3 minutes then cook the rice in yakhni. When the rice is 75 % done , very gently stir in the paste , when that is well mixed stir in all the fried ingredients , seal the container and let it cook under dum for 20 minutes or so , take off heat and leave in dum till ready to eat !I hope I haven't confused you with this long narration ! Do try this , it's delicious . Use mustard oil !
