  17. Hi Arti... the recipe is simple enough to follow but isnt 1/2 kg rice too much for just 1/4 kg mutton....almost all other recipes recommend more mutton and less rice. !/2 kg rice would be good for at least 4 ppl...mutton is too less for 4.

  18. @Sonia Mehrotrayou can increase the mutton level as you like..

  23. HiArti,
    I appreciate your efforts for giving very easy way of making Mutton Biriyani with step by stem process and with very good photos.. It is great and very tasty.
    I would like to add a few points. Add 50 grams of papaya raw piece to mutton, or half teaspoon of cooking soda and cook in pressure cooker for 6 to 7 whistles in low m flame. This process with increase pH of the content to become basic and mutton becomes tender and cook faster. Also, the biriyani rice can be cooked outside for 10 minutes and drain away water. Add this half cooked rice instead of soaked rice. You can see the difference. Very Yummy.
