Take the biriyani making pot, add little oil in the bottom of the pot and add the marinated mutton pieces and spread it to a layer.




Now add the 40%  done rice on the top of the marination and sprinkle with little fried onion, corriander leaves n mint leaves.



Then spread the 60% done rice on the top and spread it to a layer and top it with the remaining fried onion, corriander n mint leaves and sprinkle with the saffron milk mixture.



Close the lid tightly and keep the pot in direct heat if using heavy bottom pot or else use a dosa tawa and place ur biriyani pot on the top of the tawa.



Make sure the heat is moderate n not high. Leave it like this for at least an hour.

After an hour open the dum and mix it gently.

Serve hot with raitha or Chicken Gravy.
