Wash the rice thoroughly and soak in water for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, marinate the lamb with the yoghurt, ginger, garlic and salt to taste. Keep aside for at least one hour.
Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and fry the onions till brown. Take out about 100g of fried onions and reserve for garnish.
Add the marinated lamb to the onions, plus garam masala, chilli powder, turmeric powder, half the lemon juice and diced tomatoes. Simmer, covered, over a low heat until the meat becomes tender. Add chopped mint and coriander, bay leaves, cloves and cardomom. This becomes the biryani masala.
Bring water to the boil, add salt and lemon juice, drain the soaked rice and add to the boiling water. When rice is half-cooked, drain.
Taking another heavy-bottomed cooking pot, layer the lamb biryani masala and the rice alternately, finishing with a layer of rice. Top with fried cashew nuts, sultanas, rose water, saffron, butter and the milk.
Cover with a cloth and seal tightly. Cook for at least 25 minutes over a slow fire. When steam emerges from the pot, remove from the heat and mix together.
Serves with sarlas (see recipe below) and lime pickle.
1 Spanish onion, sliced
1 sprig curry leaves,
20g chopped ginger
2 green chillies, chopped
Salt to taste
Mix the onion, curry leaves, ginger and chillies together, then add the yoghurt and salt to taste. Serve as a condiment with biryani.

Seasoning meat for goulash
After you have diced your meat for the goulash place it in a plastic bag and add flour and salt and pepper. Twist the top of the bag to seal and give it a good shake. This will ensure that all the meat is evenly coated in the seasoned mixture before you brown it.
Made with a reduction of shallots, tarragon, and white wine and combined with egg yolks, butter and seasoning. Served mainly with grilled meats and fish.
