How to make it

  • Marinate venison in juiced lemon and lime for 1 to 8 hours
  • Wash rice and put in a small saucepan with all above ingredients.
  • Bring it to a boil on high heat, then cover and simmer gently until all the water is absorbed, set aside.
  • Heat butter in a large saucepan (medium heat), add onions and fry till golden around the edges.
  • Add red and green peppers and fry two minutes.
  • All at once add garlic, ginger and all the spices and fry one minute longer. Add all other ingredients except saffron and yogurt. Add salt to taste. Cover and cook on low heat until venison is tender, stirring occasionally (about 40 minutes). During cooking a little water may be added if and when necessary to avoid sticking but there should be very little liquid remaining in the pan when it’s done.
  • Add yogurt, mix and cook 2 minutes
  • Add half the prepared rice, spreading it evenly over the mixture, drizzle one tbsp of oil over it and add the saffron mixed into two tsp of milk.
  • Cover with remaining rice, cover and cook on very low heat for ten minutes.

    We don't have venison available to us too often, but we love it when we do! A friend's husband is Pakistani, and she makes the most delicious biryani, with both lamb and beef. She also has large chunks of potato in hers, which seems strange, having 2 starches in the same dish, but somehow it works! I would have never thought of using venison, but I think that it would really be a delicious variation!

    I always have venison in the freezer. I have had a similar recipe to this with lamb but never thought about using venison. Thanks for the idea... Jim

    If one doesnt do Venison, Lamb or Goat, could Chicken be a substitute in this recipe?
