For marinating the mutton, mix all the marination ingredients and place them in a vessel. Then cook the meat on low flame till it gets tender. In case the meat dries up, add a little water. In a separate vessel, boil water and add salt, cardamom, and chilli. Skim the chilli and spices, and add the soaked rice. Cook the rice till it is half cooked. At this stage, strain the rice, and add it over the cooked meat. Spread the rice over the meat with a ladle and add a ladle of hot water strained from the rice. Add two tablespoons of ghee, and drizzle soaked saffron along with browning onions. Seal the vessel with a dough and a tight-fitting lid. Cook it on high flame for a minute, and then lower the heat and cook on dum for about fifteen minutes. Remove from heat, and let it sit for ten minutes before opening the lid. Serve hot with raita.
