This is a very easy recipe for making mutton biryani in a pressure cooker. The mutton is cooked first and then added to the rice and aromatics along with the liquid used for cooking mutton. Here is how to do mutton biryani in the pressure cooker.
Gently wash the basmati rice in running water and let the rice soak in the water. Soaking the rice in water is one of the key steps in making biryani in pressure cooker. It helps in keeping the rice intact while cooking without becoming mushy. Soak the rice in water before starting to cook. Set aside.
Take a pressure cooker and add in the mutton pieces, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder and red chilli powder. Add 1.5 cups of water. Cover and cook for 20 minutes on medium flame. Expect 15-18 whistles. Remove from heat and set aside. Let the pressure release on its own. Remove the pieces and keep it seperately and save the liquid. The liquid has got a lot of flavour. We will use it later.
