In this article, I'll show you how to cook mutton biryani. This is an easy recipe for making Hyderabadi pakki dum mutton biryani.

Tender meat and proper cooking on a low temperature or heat are the keys to preparing any perfect lamb or mutton biryani.

Due to poor meat selection, most people struggle to cook a perfect mutton Biryani. Using meat that isn't very tender. Overcooking or cooking over a high heat can also make the mutton hard.

In this recipe I have also given step-by-step directions on how to cook mutton soft, delicate.

Mutton must be marinated in yoghurt and oil, which aids in tenderization. Use meat tenderizer, which is available in most grocery shops, if you're using meat that isn't tender or if you're not sure how tender it is. Alternatively, you may marinate with grated raw papaya, which also works wonders to tenderise the meat

This recipe will make the best mutton biryani you've ever had.

How to Make Mutton Biryani


  • Marination
  • ½ kg lamb or mutton
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon biryani masala powder or garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ cup curd or yogurt or dahi
  • 1½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the rice

  • 2 cup basmati rice
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 cloves
  • 3 green cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon shahi jeera
  • 1 cinnamon

Whole spices (for gravy)

  • 3 tablespoon oil or ghee
  • 2 inch cinnamon
  • 1 bay leaves
  • ¾ teaspoon shahi jeera
  • 8 cloves
  • 4 green cardamoms
  • 1 star anise

Other ingredients for lamb biryani

  • 1 cup onions sliced thinly
  • ½ cup mint leaves or pudina & coriander leaves
  • 2 green chilies slit
  • 1 pinch saffron soaked in 2 tablespoon of hot milk
  • ½ cup yogurt


1. Thoroughly wash and drain the meat. Combine the ginger garlic paste, salt, turmeric, biryani masala, red chilli powder, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl.

2. After that, add the curd and the oil. If you're using raw papaya paste, add it now.

3. Marinate the meat well with the above and cover. Refrigerate this for at least 4 hours. The meat is tenderised using this marinade. As a result, the longer the flesh is allowed to rest, the softer it will become. You may merely leave it for 45 minutes if you're using papaya paste. I prefer to marinate for at least 24 hours and then refrigerate. 

4. Remove the mutton from the fridge before beginning to prepare the other ingredients for the biryani. Before cooking, it's a good idea to let it come to room temperature. The onions and chilies may be sliced, and the rice can be soaked for 30 to 40 minutes. Also soak the saffron strands in milk.
