I bet none of the non vegetarians dislikes mutton biriyani.Sundays are meant for feast and that too with mutton biriyani makes the feast complete.Biriyani are many kinds, however most of the Indians love an authentic spicy Dum biriyani.I tried this in a manner of how biriyani is made during ramzan.


  • Basmati Rice- 1 Cup
  • Mutton pieces- half Cup
  • Onion- 1 Large
  • Tomato-1 Large
  • Green Chillies-2
  • Curd- 1 Tspn
  • Diluted coconut milk(Not thick)-1 Cup
  • Lemon Extract- 1 Tspn
  • Coriander Leaves-half cup
  • Cashews- 2 Tspn
  • Ghee- 2 Tspn
  • Chilli Powder- 1 Tspn
  • Coriander Powder-1 Tspn
  • Turmeric Powder-half Tspn
  • Garam masala powder- half Tspn
To Grind:
  • Tomato-half
  • Green chillies-1 full
  • Coriander leaves- half Cup
  • Mint Leaves- half cup
To Temper:
  • Cardomon-1 Tspn
  • Bay Leaves-2 Leaf
  • Star Anise- 2-3
  • Cloves-1 Tspn
  • Cinnamon- half stick
  • Poppy seeds(Kasa kasa)-half Tspn
  • Ginger garlic Paste-1 Tspn

Grind to a fine paste with the items under To Grind and keep aside.

Soak Basmati rice in water for atleast 30 minutes.

Fry cashews and sliced onion in ghee separately and keep aside.

Add a Tspn of Ghee in pressure cooker, add all the items under To temper list,ginger garlic paste,add sliced onion,when it
turns golden add half chopped tomato.

Add chilli,coriander,turmeric and garam masala powder and saute well, add the grinded mint paste,curd into this and add mutton pieces
as well along with required salt.close the lid and bake for 4 whistle.

Dry the basmati rice from water and add to the mutton After the whistle goes off.

Add the diluted coconut milk along with 1 cup of water(Adjust water according to rice),coriander leaves and cook for 2 whistle again.

After opening the cooker,mix well from all the direction so that the masala mixes well with rice, now add the fried cashew,onion,lemon extract to this.


"Adding fried cashew and onion is purely optional, you can skip this if you dont want too much of ghee.

Mutton can be replaced with chicken only difference is only 3 whistles will be fine if chicken.

You can replace ghee with normal oil as well.

You can add raisins along with cashew, which will give a bit of sweet taste( biriyani will be complete only if its spicy :) )

Add water according to the rice level, but normally basmati rice will need a little water less than the normal rice, as it will get cooked early.

Coconut milk should be diluted well and should not be thick."
