1       Tbsp. spice mixture*

1        kg lamb, cut into cubes

4        large onions

4        cloves garlic

1        piece of fresh ginger about the size of a hazelnut

1 1/2 cups meat stock

1/4    cup olive oil

2       Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped

1       tsp. ground green chili pepper

2       Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped

1/2   tsp. saffron

1/4   cup hot milk

2      cups Basmati rice, cooked

1/2   cup plain yogurt



  • In a large bowl, combine the ground spice mixture and salt. Add the meat and rub well with the spice mixture.
  • Slice three of the onions and cut the fourth into quarters.
  • In a food processer, grind the quartered onion, garlic, and ginger, adding half of the meat stock to make a thick liquid.
  • Add the mixture to the meat, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  • In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Cook the sliced onions for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until golden brown and caramelized. Transfer to a paper towel to drain.
  • Add the marinated meat to the same pot. Cook, stirring, until golden brown. Add half of the caramelized onions to the meat, reserving the other half for garnish. Mix well, add the rest of the meat stock, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes or until the meat is well done. Add more meat stock or water if necessary during cooking.
  • Add the mint, green chili pepper, and fresh cilantro to the meat mixture while stirring.
  • Soak saffron in the hot milk.
  • Divide the cooked rice in half, placing each half in a separate bowl.
  • Whisk the plain yogurt to loosen. Add one half of the rice to the yogurt. Mix saffron into the other half of the rice.
  • Mix some of the rice and yogurt mixture into the meat mixture. Using the rice with saffron, make a layer on top of the rice and yogurt mixture. Make a layer of rice and yogurt mixture on top of this. Repeat this process of alternate layering, using all the remaining rice. Cover securely.
  • Cook the mixture on low heat for 20 minutes or until done.
  • Flip the pot in a serving plate and garnish with the caramelized onions.

Chef’s notes:

  • Spice mixture* consists of equal parts cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, hot pepper, white pepper, and turmeric.
  • This dish can be made with a dough cover. Combine 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour and a pinch of salt. Gradually add 1/2 cup of water. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Roll out. Place on top of the simpulan rice layer, sealing the edges against the pot.
  • Biryani can be baked in the oven, about 350˚F (180˚C), for 20 minutes or until done.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
