Dindigul Thalapakatti Mutton Biryani:

9 Jun 2012






Dindigul Thalapakatti Biryani:



Dindigul  Mutton  Biryani … a lipsmacking favorite among most of the Non-veg lovers. It is very famous coz of its unique taste & rich spicy aroma. The main origin of this biryani is Dindigul. 



 ( From Wiki : The Thalappakatti Biriyani Hotel’s roots can be traced all the way back to 1957 . Founded by Mr. Nagasamy Naidu under the name Anandha Vilas Biriyani Hotel in Dindigul. He always wore a turban called THALAPA(a traditional head dress), which over the years became synonymous with his brand and cooking styles, leading him to earn the nick name “Thalappakatti Naidu ” which would eventually became the name of our brand and restaurants. )



I got this recipe from a cooking magazine & its super easy delicious and the spicy ingredients are pretty basic..!














Do giv a try.... and when you taste this recipe, you’ll agree it deserves every bit of its reputation..:)

Stephen

Hi Jay your dish looks very tasty but what if you don't have a pressure cooker ?????

Stephen

Jay said...

Raaja Selvanathan ; For the above recipe, 1 tbsp of salt can be added. Before closing the pressure cooked with all the added ingredients, taste a spoon and adjust the salt and spice level if needed.

Jay said...

Stephen : If you don't have pressure cooker, you can also prepare it in a big thick bottomed vessel and cook it in simmer. Cover the vessel with a lid and place a bowl of hot water over it.

Baskaran said...

I am a vegeterian still I am so impressed by the colour and texture of the biriyani. Iam so tempted I wish I have a scoop of the rice without minding the biriyani is non vegetarian.Well done.
