WHAT IS MUTTON PULAO?
Instant Pot Pakistani Mutton Pulao (Goat Pulao) is filled with the flavors of whole spices cooked within the meat; then have stock cooked within the rice. It's flavorful and aromatic. Its stock is cooked separately then mixed in with the rice. It's simply delicious. It's one of those classic Pakistani mutton recipes like Mutton Karahi, Mutton Charsi Karahi, and Mutton Paya Curry.
WHAT KIND OF MEAT SHOULD BE USED?
I used mutton (goat meat) to make this recipe but you can use any meat you want. I have made it with chicken and beef in the past, it tastes great. You can add any type of meat you want, you can even use lamb in this. However, the pressure timings varies on which type of meat you will be using.
Need to boil with whole spices, yet not needing to mix it in the stock. Same thing for garlic and ginger.
The rice-to-water is not accurate. It's extremely important to measure the pulao accurately.
