Home style mutton Biryani

Why you should make this recipe:

A biryani has so many variations and stories about the origin. However this is not a claim to any authentic or original biryani. 

I make it like this at home. It is my comfort food and is great option if i am feeling lazy to cook anything elaborate. 

A simple raita or pickle will make sure this dish is complete
