Hyderabad Mutton Biryani Masala comprises a pepper-coriander-chili-based blend that imparts a hot taste to mutton biryani. A fair amount of flavoring spices lend this blend an aromatic chorus. Hyderabadi mutton biryani is a classic dish made by layering rice over slow-cooked mutton gravy. The authentic Hyderabad biryani is meticulously prepared in the 'Kutchi' (raw) biryani style, in which raw rice and raw meat are cooked together in a 'handi' (earthen pot) with spices and a little bit of water. The richness of Hyderabad biryani is due to its unique cooking style.
