    DIRECTIONS:

    Prepare Fried Onion:
    In a large frying pan add oil. Once the oil is hot add the sliced onions. Fry the onion on very low heat for about 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown. The lower the heat it the crispier the onions will turn out.

    Prepare Biryani Masala Powder:
    In a spice blender (I am using the KRUPS spice blender... If you want to know where I bought it from click here) add all the spices (black pepper, cumin seeds, nutmeg, cardamom pods, black cardamom pods, cloves, bayleaves, coriander seeds, crushed, cinnamon stick) and blend until a you've obtain a fine powder.

    Marinate Mutton:
    In a pressure cooker place mutton, ginger, garlic and chilli paste.
    Next add yogurt, all seasonings (salt, turmeric powder, biryani masala powder, red chilli powder, coriander leaves, mint leaves, tomato sauce and fried onions). Mix well. With your hands nicely rub all of that seasonings on the meat.
    Next place the pressure cooker on the stove and cook meat on high flame for 8-10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
    Add water give a nice stir and close the pressure cooker well with it's lid and put the whistle on. Keeping the heat to high give meat pressure for 20 minutes or until tender.
    After 20 minutes check if the meat is tender if not give another 5 minutes of pressure.
    Next add oil and fry the meat for 7 minutes or until the masala separates from the oil. (if the gravy becomes too thick add some more water). Remove from heat and set aside.

    Prepare Rice:
    In a large pot bring water to boil. Once the water is boiling add in black pepper, cumin seeds, coriander seeds crushed, cardamom pods, cloves and salt. 
    Next add soaked and washed rice. Cover pot with its lid and bring rice to 2-3 boils. Once the rice is 20% cooked 
    Add 2-3 big spoon of the rice in the prepared mutton masala (you want to place the prepared meat back on the flame on low heat.
