How to make Mutton Goli Biryani

  • Step 1 Form meat balls

    In a bowl, add minced meat, ginger paste, garlic paste, beaten egg, breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp cornflour, salt, and pepper. Mix everything well. Form small meatballs and freeze them for an hour. Now make a cornflour slurry by mixing some water with 2 tbsp cornflour. Dip each meatball in the cornflour slurry to coat them well. Once done, fry the meatballs in the oil until crispy and keep them aside. Meanwhile, soak saffron in milk.

  • Step 2 Prepare the rice

    Now, heat ghee in a deep non-stick pan and add black cumin, cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon. Stir to mix well and then add rice. Season it with salt and add 4 cups of water. Let it come to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, lower the gas flame and then let the rice cook for about 10 mins. Switch off the gas flame.

  • Step 3 Layer the rice

    In another pan, add half of the meatballs followed by half of the rice. Pour half of the soaked saffron milk and half of the deep-fried onions on top of it to form a layer. Once done, add the other half of the meatballs followed by the leftover rice. Finally, add the rest of the soaked saffron and onions. Cover the pan and let it cook for 10 mins.
