Hi, For this recipe does the marinated mutton need to be cooked for some time or can be added directly with the rice and cooked over dum. Am just worried it wouldnt cook well

MalaHi, Marinate the mutton overnight. The raw papaya in the marinade will tenderize the mutton so you can add raw marinated mutton with the rice. Cook it on a low flame with the vessel placed on top of a tawa.
