Recipe Daging Briyani: Authentic Beef and Mutton Briyani

Briyani is a flavorful and aromatic rice dish that originated in the Indian subcontinent. It is typically made with fragrant Basmati rice and a variety of spices, meat, and vegetables. Daging Briyani, also known as Beef Briyani, is a popular variation of this dish that features tender pieces of beef marinated in a blend of spices and cooked with rice.

To make Daging Briyani, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 500 grams of beef, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups of Basmati rice
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced

  • Salt to taste

Start by marinating the beef with garlic, ginger, garam masala, turmeric powder, chili powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, and yogurt. Let it marinate for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat. In the meantime, soak the Basmati rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain.

Step Description
1 Heat oil in a large pot and sauté the sliced onions until they turn golden brown.
2 Add the marinated beef to the pot and cook until it is browned on all sides.
3 Remove the meat from the pot and set it aside.
4 In the same pot, add the soaked rice and enough water to cover it by about an inch.
5 Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and cover the pot.
6 Cook the rice for about 15 minutes, or until it is partially cooked.
7 Add the cooked beef back to the pot and mix it with the partially cooked rice.
8 Cover the pot again and continue cooking for another 10-15 minutes, or until the rice is fully cooked and the flavors have melded together.

Cooking Instructions

Cooking Instructions

1. Marinate the meat:

In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, and salt. Add the cubed beef or mutton and mix well to ensure that the meat is coated evenly. Allow the meat to marinate for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight, in the refrigerator.

2. Prepare the rice:

In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add the basmati rice and cook until it is 70% cooked. Drain the rice and set aside.

3. Cook the meat:

In a separate large pot, heat oil and butter. Add the sliced onions and cook until they turn golden brown. Add the marinated meat and cook until it is browned on all sides. Add water and let the meat simmer until it is tender. This can take approximately 1-2 hours, depending on the type of meat.

4. Layer the rice and meat:

In a deep oven-safe dish, spread a layer of cooked rice at the bottom. Next, add a layer of the cooked meat and onion mixture. Repeat this alternate layering until all the rice and meat mixture is used. Make sure to finish with a layer of rice on top.

5. Seal and cook:

Cover the dish with aluminum foil or a tight-fitting lid. Place the dish in a preheated oven and cook at 180°C (350°F) for about 30 minutes, or until the flavors are well combined and the rice is fully cooked.

6. Serve:

Once cooked, remove the dish from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes. Before serving, gently fluff the rice with a fork to ensure that it is light and fluffy. Serve the Daging Briani hot with raita or any desired side dish.
