ABOUT Hyderabadi Mutton Dum ki Biryani RECIPE

Whenever I die I would love to die with a spoon full of Biryani in my mouth! The only mutton delicacy I believe is worth dying for is Biryani. Slow cooked meat with whole spices and curd with long grain rice, the flavor and the aroma is simply unbeatable. My love for biryani mainly begun when i was in college. Despite being born and brought up in a Muslim family, Biryani has though been one of our staple food, still the journey of falling in love with the delicacy started after I went for my higher studies.
