Step 1

Blanch the almonds and grind to a fine paste, then dissolve in milk.

Step 2

Put in a shallow pan on a low heat.

Step 3

Remove when a thick layer of cream forms.

Step 4

Make a slit in the side of the cream and gently drain out the milk.

Step 5

Now pour milk back on top of the cream and replace on a very low heat. Repeat this until no milk is left.

Step 6

Then turn the cream out to a plate and let cool. Wipe meat with a wet cloth.

Step 7

Smear a pastry board with ghee and pound the meat with a pestle.

Step 8

While pounding, sprinkle meat with the spices and salt.

Step 9

When the meat is flattened to almost a 1/4 inch thickness cut the cream in strips and lay on the meat, leaving a 1/2 inch border all round.

Step 10

Sprinkle cream with raisins, pistachios and saffron. Roll tight, fasten with rows of toothpicks, and then tie with twine or string. Let stand for 1/2 hour.

Step 11

Steam the meat roll till tender, then fry or roast gently, basting well in a little ghee till lightly browned. Alternatively, cook in a rotisserie grill till done.

Step 12

Remove toothpicks and twine before serving. Mughlai Mutton Malai is ready to serve.
