            Bombay Biryani A world-renowned Indian dish,” Bombay Biryani” Spicy, hot and flavorsome rice layered with lamb or chicken with potatoes. Bombay Biryani is a classic Southeast Asian meat and condiment pulao (rice) dish
            Biryani Takes time and practice to make but is worth every bit
            of the effort, Long grained rice like basmati flavored with exotic spices such as  saffron is layered with lamb, chicken, fish, beef, and mutton cooked in a thick gravy is layered with some garnishing and  covered the lid to cook more on simmering over low heat

            The taste is a little mild as compared to other types of biryani like Sindhi biryani, Hyderabadi Biryani, or chicken biryani, Traditionally cooked in layers of basmati rice and marinated chicken along with potatoes in classic biryani spices   

            But here I did variation and cook in my own style with the mutton meat instead of chicken neither add potatoes in this recipe because the potato isn’t coming good in taste nowadays so I have to skip but if you want to add you can, This Tasty and simple Biryani usually is served with mixed vegetable raitaonion salad along with the green sauce
            So let the go-ahead to know How to make the Bombay biryani Recipe

            Recipe tips:
            1. To prepare this recipe you cook first rice about 2-3 hours before layering the biryani
            2. If you do not make sure that you can handle basmati rice then can be used seela basmati rice instead of long-grain basmati
            3. If you are using chicken meat don’t add water to cook korma chicken meat is so fragile easily can shred after being mixed with rice
            4. Always use a large capacity pot for cooking biryani your rice grain won’t break
            5. At the time of boiling rice add 1 tsp white vinegar they won’t stick to each other
