Qeema Biryani

1 cup Masoor Daal
2-3 cups Basmati Rice
1 1/2 - 2 lbs Ground Beef
1 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup fried onions
3 tbsp yogurt
1 box Shan Bombay Biryani Mix
1 box Shan Sindhi Biryani Mix
Yello food color
2 tso whole cumin seeds
5-6 whole dried red peppers
Handful of Fried onions for garnishing

Here is a cup of Masoor Daal
 and three cups of rice measured into separate bowls.
 Wash then a few times and draining the water each time and soaking them in water.
 Here is the Qeema..
 Now boil the lentils (Masoor) in salt and water until tender.

 Wash and drain the qeema. In the meanwhile, also boil the rice and keep it aside.
 In a pot, add a tablespoon full of oil, qeema, Biryani Masalas (use 3/4 pack of each if you don't like it hot), diced tomatoes, yogurt and fried onions.
 Cook while stirring occasionally until qeema is tender and all excess water is evaporated.
 Now in a pot big enough, grease the bottom. This should be the pot you are serving the biryani in as well. Put a thin layer of rice to cover the bottom of the pot entirely.
 Now put the Qeema layer to cover the rice entirely.
 Now put a layer of Masoor daal to cover the qeema.

 Now cover with the rest of the rice until it reaches the top.
 Pat it down a little with a flat soon.
 Sprinkle yellow food color. You can add Kewra as well at this point if you like.
 Now sprinkle the fried onions.
 In a small pan, heat 2 tbsp oil and add cumin seeds and whole red peppers.
 Let it sizzle.
 Pour it over on top.
 Heat a dumm griddle on high.
 Cover the pot and put it on top.
 And lower the heat to minimum.
 Leave it that way for atleast half an hour. You will know when condensations starts to build up on the inside of the lid.
Ready to Serve. Look at the pretty layers. Someone, please make this now and call me over. This is making me hungry..

You know...your blogs are think GREYHOUND true rescues have picked it up..and it's all about MMMMM- MMMMMMMMMMM?
The QUEEN in all her falsities with Q- COQ with GREEDQUE and GREED ARK has ended her rule as QUEEN of BITCH.
Because our movie is going to document all the cruelty in CROOL and all the FOCK EWS like MITT ROMNEY...that served her with those SICKO RICO THRONE GAMES.
And as for YAN and SEACREST?
" PFST!"
Just like SUMAR.
