Stock/Yakhni:

  • 20 g Ginger/Adrak roughly chopped
  • 3 Garlic Cloves/Lehsan
  • 1 tsp Salt/Namak
  • 1 tsp Black Peppercorns
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds/Jeera
  • 10 Cloves/Laung
  • 2 Bay Leaves/Taj Patta
  • 3 Black Cardamom Pods/Bari Elachi
  • 1.5 L Water

Rice:

  • 50 ml Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Onions/Pyaz finely diced
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 5 Garlic Cloves/Lehsan
  • 1 tbsp Salt/Namak
  • 400 g Rice
  • 3 Green Chillies halved
  • 1 tbsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tbsp Cumin Seeds/Jeera

Instructions

  • In a large pan add the lamb, onion, ginger, garlic cloves, salt, black peppercorns, cumin seeds, cloves, bay leaves, black cardamom pods and water then stir the pot to evenly distribute the ingredients
  • Cover and leave to cook on medium heat for 30-45 minutes
  • When the lamb/mutton has softened, remove the lamb and set aside
  • In a separate bowl, wash and soak the rice
  • In another pan heat up the vegetable oil on medium heat until hot then add the finely diced onions, garlic cloves and salt and cook for 10-15 minutes until the onions are browned – the colour of the onions will determine the colour of the rice at the end
