About this pressure cooker mutton biryani
We’ll start by marinating the mutton pieces with green chillies, ginger, garlic and salt. Most of the cooking happens in the pressure cooker. Onions are shallow fried with other ingredients in the pressure cooker. Marinated mutton is added to the mix. All the ingredients are combined well, and then pressure cooked to perfection.
Check out the recipe notes if you are not familiar with cooking meat in a pressure cooker. Wait for the pressure to drop naturally before opening the lid.
When you open the lid, you’ll see the mutton pieces cooked well, falling off the bones, and simmering in the flavourful juices. Rice cooked with whole spices is added to the pressure cooker, and cooked for some more time to complete our delicious, pressure cooker mutton biryani.
