Annette, I tried the recipe for the first time and it came out so good. We never get good south Indian biriyani here in North Carolina. Now I can make my own any time. Thank you very much. Best wishes..

Dear Anusha,

Thanx for posting a comment, i have not checked this site in a long time so i dont know for how long your query has been there. To clear them here goes. 1) Yes! it has to be raw mutton pieces, which will get cooked perfectly well by the time the gravy is done. 2) The rice has to be cooked in a seperate vessel and once its half done transfer it to the vessel in which the gravy is being made and blend well. I hope this clears your queries.
