Restaurant style Mutton Biriyani / Mutton Biriyani!!!!


Mutton Biriyani, I bring you an another style of biriyani from Southern part of India (Tamil nadu). In my place, we mostly use tomatoes instead of curd / yogurt in biriyani, this gives the tangyness & nice taste to it. Pressure cooking is easy way to prepare biriyani, this method helps to give tenderness to mutton & flavor.

Side dishes for biriyani is Brinjal thokku; Onion raitha etc., 
Happy Cooking !!
Bon appetite !!
