Notes:
  1. Adding raw papaya paste works as a meat tenderizer and is usually added to mutton dum biryani.
  2. If raw papaya paste is not available then meat tenderizers are easily available in super markets.
  3. If the tenderizer is not added to mutton then the mutton does not become soft while giving dum.
  4. If tenderizer is not used then mutton has to be marinated for about 4-5 hours.
  5. Spices such as mutmeg and mace are totally optional.
  6. Placing a tawa below the dum pot prevents the biryani from burning at the bottom.
  7. Adding oil in steps does not make the biryani dry.
  8. Desi ghee gives the fragrance to the biryani.
  9. Spices added can be increased or reduced according to one's taste.
