Kheema Balls Briyani


Hello everyone....

This is my Hubby's most favourite briyani.. which I had promised to prepare atleast 1.5 years back and never remembered about the promise.

:( Poor he and he also never reminded me of the same. I then got kheema home today when I had been to the market. And suddenly decided to prepare this briyani and made this one. The original idea was to make rava kheema upuma (Rav upuma along with Kheema) which I would post soon.!!!!!!

mutton kheema - 1/4 kg
rice - 2 cups
onions - 2 (thinly sliced)
tomatoes - 2 (coarsely chopped)
ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
cloves - 5
cinnamon - 1" stick
cardamom - 5
bay leaves - 2
salt to taste
turmeric powder - 1 tsp
red chilli powder - 1 tsp
green chillies - 4 (slit in between)
garam masala - 1/2 tsp
pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
