Mutton Biryani | How to make Mutton Briyani step by step | Sunday Special Recipes

Muslim Mutton Briyani

Mutton Biryani or Lamb Biryani has become famous now a days in our home. I used to buy mutton in India, but after coming to Singapore, we do not get good mutton, near by our place and so stopped cooking mutton. But one of my friend suggested to buy mutton from Mustafa and tried it. It was soft and got cooked properly. So started buying from there, whenever we go for shopping. This Mutton Biryani I tried last week and it was perfect. Do try this at home and drop your comments.
