Thalappakatti Mutton Biriyani is an iconic dish in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It has a unique flavor with Seeraka samba rice. Seeraka samba rice helps for good digestion and adds extra flavor to the biriyani. This is my husband’s favorite. He loves biriyani very much, especially Thalappakatti Mutton Biriyani is his most favorite one. I had many attempts to get the actual taste, At last, I got it. Not only adding ingredients will give you the flavor. the time taking to cook the ingredients, cautious in not burning at the bottom is more important and the main part is to keep the biriyani in dum will give you the excellent texture to the biriyani.

Whenever, I saw any biriyani posts from Whatsapp, Instagram, I suddenly text my friends and ask for recipes. Likewise, last Ramazan, one of my friends Benazir shared the mutton biriyani post in our group. Wow! the texture and color look great. Suddenly I asked for a recipe. and she gave the most useful tips to get the flavor and I added it to this recipe. Thank you, Benazir !!

I did little changes to her recipe and make this Thalappakatti Mutton biriyani. My husband was very happy and added few more spoons to his plates.
