Mutton Yakhni Biryani is a traditional and yummy recipe, yakhni biryani is not prepared with any specific recipe or is applied by different methods, not at all. Rather it's a combination of biryani and pulao. But are added tomato, yogurt, and spice powder which are added in other types of biryani recipes, to understand this biryani pulao method is quite different instead of the typical biryani method, rather it is similar to the pulao cooking method
how to make mutton yakhni biryani

I’m so pleased to share this recipe. I tried this recipe twice and it turned out really good. If you like it please share your opinion in the comments, that’s a great motivation. As a family tradition, we make yakhni biryani

I’m very fond of garnishing so I’ve added fried onions, ginger garlic paste green chilies, tomatoes, and my homemade yakhni biryani masala, The Yakhni pulao taste was so yummy

Generally, Yakhni pulao is not very spicy but this one is moderately spiced. You may use fewer green chilies if you like them less spicy. What makes pulao yummy is the striking aroma and broth-flavored rice.

Tip for making Yakhni Biryani:
The thing with making biryani is that the rice grain should be well separated. Now, that’s a thing you learn with a little practice.

While making Yakhni, keep in mind we need half-cooked meat. We will cook it in rice and it will be cooked again for 10 minutes. So, if you overcook your meat it will come off the bone and lose all its texture.  So meat should be almost cooked but not very soft.

This is the most important ingredient. Since all water will be absorbed by the rice, we need to keep the Yakhni salty like a bit of salty soup. You can taste Yakhni right before adding soaked rice to check the salt. Water Level of gravy in Yakhni Biryani

The second tip keep the water level 1 inch above the rice layer when you add rice in yakhni to make pulao. When the rice has puffed and water is not visible above the rice, reduce the heat to very low and cover the lid

How to fix the water in biryani:

  1. If your pulao has accidentally added more water do not worry just take a dry kitchen towel/handkerchief cover the pot properly and leave it on low flame for at least 30 minutes it will be set on its own
  2. On the other hand, if your rice seems uncooked and the water is almost evaporated then wet the kitchen towel thoroughly cover the pot properly with it, and leave for 15 minutes after minutes you will see your rice has cooked properly
Note: don’t add more water when rice is undercooked it will be mushy and sticky, So let's begin

Pulao Rice is quite excellent aromatic, flavored, and tasteful pulao, it is prepared with basmati rice, pure ghee with some whole spices, almonds, and raisins_At the time of simmering is sprinkled with fried brown onions, kewra essence these ingredients make them flavorful and aromatic pulao, this pulao goes well with mutton korma or chicken korma
Although I made chicken shorba with this pulao, this curry is also good with this pulao

This pulao rice is my family's version cooked at events like Eid or any other event. Personally, I like to have it with raita or kabab by using the same method can be variations in pulao such as adding boiled peas, mutton, or chicken, these ingredients can enhance the taste, you can check out veggie pulao or matar pulao on my blog, so let’s begin 

  1. Long-grain basmati rice is the perfect choice for making any type of pulao
  2. Adding almonds and raisins along with cashew nuts also
  3. Determine the water ratio in rice depending on the soaked rice
  4. One cup of water is enough for 1 cup of properly soaked rice,1 ½ cups of water for 1 cup un soaked rice
  5. To enhance the taste can be added boiled chicken or mutton
  6. Also cooking rice in stock will make more delicious pulao
