Mutton Biryani Recipe here in this post is a pakki yakhni style Hyderabadi biryani recipe made by cooked mutton and also cooking it by making layers of mutton and rice.
There are several other biryani recipes on the blog mainly chicken biryani.
When it comes to non vegetarian recipes generally mutton is rarely preferred and chicken is highly requested to make many non veg delicacies but I would suggest to include all kinds of non veg such as fish, chicken, mutton as well for a healthy body.
Biryani is loved by everyone and biryani is not only prepared in non vegetarian section but veg biryani recipes too are a craze amongst Indians which can be served with biryani raitas or curries.
Types of Biryani:
Biryani recipes never end and the list of biryani recipes goes on such as egg biryani, chicken biryani recipes, paneer biryani, fish biryani, prawn biryani etc...Every region across India makes hundreds of different varieties of special rice recipes and each method and technique used is different.
I have already posted dum style biryanis in different methods but pakki yakhni style biryani is a unique style where the mutton is completely cooked and added to the rice in layers.
The difference in dum biryani and pakki yakhni biryani is nothing but the dum biryani with mutton requires a long time to marinate but this recipe can be made quickly by pressure cooking the mutton and quickly adding it to the layered rice with some interesting seasoning.
