How to make Thalassery Mutton Dum Biriyani

  3. Meanwhile, place the pressure cooker with the marinated mutton on a high flame, cook for 3 whistles. Lower the flame and cook for 10 minutes.Add the cooked mutton along with the stock into the onion-tomato mixture and cook on low flame for 10 mins. Add the lime juice, yogurt, coriander and mint leaves and give a nice stir. Adjust the salt and seasoning, cook till just boiled.
  4. In another saucepan, heat the ghee for the rice. On medium flame, add in the whole masala and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the onions, sauté till just soft, for around 3 minutes.
  5. Add in the drained rice, sauté till the rice becomes crispy, for around 10 mins. Add in the hot water, adjust salt, increase the flame and wait till the water boils. Lower the flame, tightly close the lid and leave for 10 minutes. Heat the chappathi tawa/ griddle on medium flame till done.
  6. Sprinkle 1/2 garam masala and 1/2 the fried dum ingredients over the prepared mutton masala. Layer the whole rice on top of the masala. Sprinkle the remaining garam masala, the remaining dum ingredients, coriander and mint leaves, and finally the rose water.
