Kacche Mutton Dum Biryani - Bangalore Style

This biryani does not have much spices, just chopprized green masala and rest is prepared in a breeze. My guest were surprised to know that this does not have spices which is a must for biryani. This biryani has an awesome taste and is ready in flat 30 minutes.
