What is Mutton Briyani?

Dindigul Thalapakatti biryani is a very popular dish in the districts of Dindigul. This style of mutton briyani originated from Dindigul near Madurai in South India.

This dish is made using jeera rice which enhances the flavors of the dish. It helps in quick digestion compared to basmathi rice.

Once you taste this delicious mutton biryani, I’m sure you will stay away from using basmati rice.

Mutton briyani can be prepared both by using pressure cooker or kadai. In both the methods, the mutton has to be first cooked separately with the necessary spices. This results in a perfectly cooked mutton.

Here, I have used the pressure cooker method to prepare the dish. The pressure cooker method is more quick compared to the kadai method.
