One-Pot Lamb / Mutton Pulao in Instant Pot

Hello Foodies,
           Lamb / Mutton Pulao in which rice is cooked in a seasoned lamb broth. Each grain has to
be separate and flavourful, cooked as it is in just enough stock to let it cook thoroughly without getting mushy. When we are looking for simple, one-pot comfort food which is easy to prepare and delicious to eat, this lamb pulao fits perfectly on such days. This Pulao tastes good when served with raita, or with yogurt or can be eaten as it is. To make this lamb pulao I have used regular rice(short grain rice), you can use brown rice or basmati rice(long grain rice) too. You can use ghee/clarified butter instead of veg.oil, ghee adds flavor to the rice. I have used yogurt while marinating lamb and it takes the taste to a whole new level. Most of the ingredients in this recipe used are easy to find. What takes long is cooking the lamb and onion; make sure to give that some time as it makes all the difference. This dish is perfect for a quick meal where everything is put into one pot, and the result is a delicious flavourful pulao. There are many other meat recipes on the blog. Do have a look at them as well.

    • NPR for 10 minutes and then release remaining pressure manually.
    • Add coriander leaves and mix well, serve hot with raita or with yogurt. Enjoy!!!

My Take:

  • Remove the insert from the instant pot, so the lower layer of rice does not overcook from the hot bade.
  • You can add whole spices(cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf, black peppercorn) to this Pulao to make it more flavorsome.
  • I have added just 1 cup of water because while marinating lamb I also have added yogurt, so I don't want my rice to be mushy. If you like mushy/sticky rice, then you can add ½ cup of water more.
