Andhra Mutton Biryani: I am very happy to share my most favorite traditional mutton biryani that can be made in a jiffy. This is a delicious Indian recipe popular in Andhra Pradesh. It is different from traditional biryani recipe. It is simple and quick toprepare and suitable for new cooks, busy folks and bachelors. The secret to make any good mutton biryani is tender meat and cooking it the right way to juicy chunks. In this recipe I have included clear steps on how to cook mutton that yields soft and delicious taste. The recipe is made with mutton but can be substituted with chicken also.
