Pakistani Beef Biryani
- Saute on high heat until the beef changes color.
MAKING THE BEEF MASALA
- Add the yogurt, tomato, spices and Shan biryani masala. - Cook on high heat, while stirring, for about 5-7 minutes.
- Now add the water (beef should be submerged in water) and pressure cook until the beef is cooked through.
Once the beef is cooked through, add the cubed potato. You need to cook the beef masala on high heat until the excess water evaporates and the oil separates from the curry and you can see it on the surface of the curry. After the beef masala is ready, set it aside while you make the rice
In a large pot, bring the water to boil. Add the water with the spices and boil until the rice is just cooked i.e. par boiled or as we say in Urdu aik kani.
