    1. Marinate the Lamb: Take the lamb in a bowl and marinate it with garlic ginger paste and salt.
    2. Rice Wash the rice under cold water and then strain the water. Take the rice in a pot and add water. Put the pot on simmer until all the water evaporates and rice puffs up.
    3. Lamb Add garlic ginger paste, onions, carrot, cardamom, sugar, 5 spices and oil into a pressure cooker. Fry until the onions are caramelized and brown. Now add the tomato purée and fry for another 5 minutes till you smell the smokiness. Remove the lamb from the marinate and reserve the marinate juice. Add the lamb to the cooker and fry for 5 minutes. In a cup mix the cornflour, water and the left over marinate juice. Pour only 1/2Tbsp of the mixture into the cooker. Fry for another 3 minutes and then cover it with the lid. Remove the cooker from the heat after 5 whistles. Place the cooker under cold water before opening the lid. Once the pressure is out open the lid. Place the cooker without the lid on high heat for a couple of minutes to reduce the sauce. Add salt to taste.
