Notes

1)Marinating mutton is important. So atleast marinate for 1 hour.
2)Add raw papaya paste to make the meat tender and cook faster.
3)If you are not adding papaya paste marinate mutton for 8 hours or overnight.
4)Cook rice only till 50% else it will get mushy during the 1 hour dum process.
5)Cook the rice on very very low heat. You can even place it over a tawa which is heated.
