Mutton Biriyani


Mutton biriyani is the royal biriyani among all other meats. The mutton itself contains lots of ghee which goes very well with the rice and enhances the taste. Even though some of them cooking with the same ingredients, the tastes differ a lot due to the difference in sauting time and amount of masala adding.  Here I’m cooking the rice along with mutton stock; so that it needs less ghee and the rice get a nice color.
