Cinnamon - 1 inch

Jeera - 1/2tsp
Fenel seeds - 1tsp
Kaskas/Poppy seeds - 1tsMethod
Put 1tsp of oil,1 tsp ghee in a hot pressure cooker.Once the oil+ghee mix hot enough, add biryani leaf,star spice(optional), chopped onions, chopped small onion and green chillies.Fry till onions are slightly browned.Then add gg paste, powdered masala and tomatoes.Fry till tomatoes are almost cooked.Now add the mutton and 1/2 of the coconut milk and curd.Cook it till mutton is 3/4 done (About 4-5 whistles).Now add the remaining coconut milk and washed rice,chilli powder,salt and lime juice.Cook it one medium flame for about 8 min.s or cook it for upto 1 whistle and switch off the heat.Open the pressure cooker only after all pressure is gone.Enjoy this delicious biryani with raita and boiled egg.

Only 2 cups of liquid , in this case coconut milk is required for upto 3 cups of rice, as mutton releases its own juice.Feel free to adjust the amout of liquid as per your measurement.

The Biryani looks great Maheshwari. This has coconut milk I see, is it because it s a Tamil dish

Usually we never add coconut to our mutton Biryani

Your recipe sounds good. I just love the spice mix with fennel and poppy seeds. They make the non veg dishes extra delicious. I will try this with chicken sometime.
