Marinate Mutton:

Add 1 Cup Yogurt and 1/2 Tsp Turmeric powder to the meat and marinate upto 1 hour before preparation.
  • In a pressure cooker add 1 Tbsp oil and the marinated meat fry a bit add the 2 Tbsp of the Biryani paste and salt stir well allow the meat to fry in its own juices for some time. 
  • Add 1 1/2 Cups water place the lid and allow to cook for 3 to 4 whistles till the meat is fork tender.

to cook the meat I used 2 liter pressure cooker.

If the rice measure is 1 cup I've added 1 1/2 cups of liquid i.e meat stock water and coconut milk combined.
For me when i measured the 500grms rice its exactly 2 glasses of rice so I've added 3glasses of liquid to the rice.
  • Add 1/2 to 1 Tbsp of biryani paste to the meat and fry the meat a bit set aside the heat in the biryani depends on your choice its up to you how much heat you want we normally like it spicy and hot.
The layering can be done in the pressure cooker or in a microwave dish and microwave for 5 minutes depending on the heat setting your microwave has.
  • Divide the meat and rice. layer the meat and rice equally add coriander and mint close the pressure cooker and place on very low flame for 5 to 10 minutes with out placing the whistle.
  • Serve with onion raita and boiled eggs enjoy...Happy cooking...:)
I've used 7 1/2 liter pressure cooker to cook the rice. used the same pressure cooker to layer the meat and rice for dum...:)
