one pot beef briyani

If you ever visited Alor Setar... you must try this Nasi Mamak... the shop is located opposite the old market, near Kilang Ais... behind our ex-PM's childhood house...not the first shop near the traffic light junction!...

Whenever we were in Alor Setar, we would request this nasi mamak for breakfast ... especially Mr H and Mr H Jr! Both father and son can have this nasi mamak everyday!! Unbelievable...

This one pot beef briyani is not nearly as good.. but then beggars can't be choosers!!

  • 500g beef - cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoon coriander seeds - grounded
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin seed - grounded
  • 1 brown onion - thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic and 1 inch ginger - pounded
  • 1 carrots - diced
  • 2 cups of basmati rice
  • 2 1/2 cup water or chicken stock.
  • salt
  • Fresh coriander for garnishing
Saute the onion until soft. Add the garlic, ginger and the grounded spice and stir until fragrant. Add in the beef strips. Stir for a while to seal the juice. Then add in the basmati rice and season to taste. Transfer the mixture into a rice cooker. Add in water and diced carrots.
Garnish with fresh coriander..before serving
