I cooked Mutton Biryani with the above Procedure. Unfortunately the Mutton didnt' cook properly. We end up eating only biryani. Since the Mutton is hard I feel the above procedure doesn't work. I cooked Chicken Biryani and it came out very well. I feel the above video should be revisited and guided properly. Mutton will get wasted if you cook via above procedure.

Hi, I tried the same recipe atleast thrice, the mutton didn't get cooked. What am I missing here, please advise.

Looks excellent and should taste good but I can't help noticing that some ingredients are used but not included in the list of ingredients (e.g ground coriander & ground cumin). Other ingredients are in the list but not used (e.g garlic & ginger paste).

This is a little sad in what is otherwise an excellent series of videos.

Can you re-list the ingredients required, please.
