This is a highly indulgent recipe that marries culture with heritage. The key secret to a great mutton biryani is the correct marination of the lamb chunks and slow cooking on low heat. The chunks can be doused in raw papaya paste which will yield great results. Spices like cumin, coriander, and star anise are added to prepare an elaborate meal. It is a favorite for occasions like Eid and other auspicious festivals.
