Garam masala powder ...its a medley of lots of spices, usually pretty easily available from any indian grocery store. If not, you can make it yourself at home by crushing/grinding some black pepper, bay leaves, cardamom, bay leaves, coriander seeds, cinnamon, cloves etc ...its has the best flavor and aroma when made fresh :) Good luck !

As promised in my previous posting,I did try cooking kachi biriyani with a tender shoulder piece of a baby goat and high quality,long grained basmati rice, religiously following your very animated and zesty instructions. But I messed up. This is not to cast any aspersions on your expertise, it was me trying it for the first time lacking in experience messed it up. I over cooked and the rice became like halwa and the meat had separated off the bones in the pot itself. I am confident I will get it right the next time because I have analyzed my mistake. Thank you anyway;

All you needed to do was, rename it as mutton dum halwa. By the way, did you try it again?

I tried this recipe and modfied it by not cooking the rice with the meat. I cooked the meat with the same ingredients and then layered it with 90% cooked rice - with fried onions, mint and coriander in each layer, and baked it. This was the best biriyani i have ever made. I have passed on this link to several of my friends. Love this recipe and this site !

Nazia Ansari's picture
Naeema We dont get that ingredient in bahrain but u can use raw pappya, marinate the mutton with that for few hours with remaining ingredient but while cooking u remove the pappya. NOTE do not cook mutton with raw pappya Nazia

I have made both Lamb and Goat biryani using this Recipe.... It come out excellent. Love the Chef's passion. One request is to have the test version of the ingredients and the recipe listed here as well. I did find an issue with using atta or Aluminum foil to seal the vessel... It always sprung a leak... any suggestions?
