Chettinad Mutton Biryani | Mutton Biryani in pressure cooker | Spicy mutton biryani recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Chettinad Mutton Biryani is aromatic and flavorful biryani made with freshly grounded spices and coconut milk. I have used seeraga samba rice which is used in many places down south in Tamilnadu for making Biryani. It is more flavorful than basmati rice and coconut milk lends rich taste to this biryani.
I made this in pressure cooker so it saves time in cooking mutton . You can use the same set of spices and make veg biryani too. I adopted the recipe from here. Make fresh paste of small onions, chilli, mint and coriander leaves along with little coconut. Adjust the spices according to your preference. I made this Biryani as part of my chettinad Thali.
