Sofyani Biryani Recipe


Sofyani Biryani | Mutton White Biryani || How to make sofyani biryani with step-by-step photos

Mutton white biryani is a delicious,mild-spiced, mouth-watering layered white rice dish. made with marinated flavored mutton with mint and coriander leaves.

This recipe originated from the kitchens of the Nizams. It was cooked on special occasions and is known for its aroma and white color.


If you go by the original Sofiyani Biryani Recipe, it’s a completely white biryani delicately cooked with almond paste, milk, cream, and yogurt without the usage of any powdered spices especially red chili powder or turmeric powder Rather than green chilies and black pepper powder are used to spike up the heat and whole spices are used for the aromatics. And no saffron.

Toward the end, I drizzled some biryani essence to enhance the aroma but this is totally optional.


This white biryani can be prepared with any type of meat like chicken, beef, or lamb. the rest of the recipe methods will remain the same. if you are using chicken meat then no need for a long time of marination just 15 minutes is enough

For the best result follow my detailed step-by-step photo instructions and tips above the recipe card


Recipe notes:

Rice: Choose aged premium  quality  rice as it cooks up to fluffy long grains, Soaking the rice and cook it in surplus water to get rid of starch and keep the grains non-sticky


Marination: long time marination makes the meat soft, tender, and juicy. also, the meat absorbs the flavor just 2 hours of marination is sufficient no need to add papaya to the beef just giving it a proper marination time is good enough for making tender meat




Layering biryani: In this recipe, I just made two layers one of which is mutton and the other is rice on top. but you can make 2 or 3 layers of rice as desired. The most important instruction is to use a large capacity pot as your rice won’t be mushy or sticky to each other


Biryani essence/kewra don’t skip biryani essence or kewra as this ingredient brings in that unique aroma. a few drops of kewra or biryani essence can make super aromatic biryani

To begin this recipe first chop green chilies, ginger, and garlic coarsely 



Then in a blender put chopped green chilies and ginger-garlic with a little water. and blend it into a smooth paste keep it aside



Take milk and peeled almond 



Then blend almond with milk  to a fine paste



Prepare all ingredients that are going to be marinated



Rinse the mutton under the running water and put it into a mixing bowl, Next, add green chili paste, almond paste, yogurt



Add cream, salt, black pepper powder, coriander, and mint leaves



Add lemon juice, and mix everything well



Towards the end add the gram masala powder and mix well 



And refrigerate for 2 hours 


Wash basmati rice well until the water runs clear, and soak it for at least 3o minutes to 40 minutes 


After 2 hours heat the ghee in the pressure cooker/pan add onion, and sauté them for 3-4 minutes or until translucent, add whole spices 



And fry them with onion for a minute, Before putting the marinated mutton into the pot stir well again



Fry them with onion and spices for 5-6 minutes on medium flame, Pour water into the mutton and let it come to the boil



Close the cooker's lid and cook for around 15 minutes on medium heat after whistling. I used a pressure cooker while you can use a pot



After 15 minutes let the pressure release naturally, then open the lid and check if the water quantity is more continue to cook on the high flame until the moisture is almost evaporated and a thick gravy is left



Preheat the heavy iron Tawa 



Bring water to a boil in a large pot by adding green chilies, shah jeera, cloves, green cardamom, star anise, mint leaves, salt white vinegar, and oil



Add the drained rice into the water, Cook until 90% done on a medium flame. The rice will be al-dente at this stage and you will feel the bite if eaten but almost done



When done drain it into a colander 


Layer the mutton masala at the bottom of the pot using the same pot in which we have boiled the rice



Next layer rice on top of the mutton masala. Pour a little warm milk, ghee 



Sprinkle the brown onion and coriander 



Add a few drops of biryani essence



Cover the pot with the lid and keep the heavy object over the lid so that steam can be sealed within the pot

Simmer the rice first 5-8 minutes on a high flame. And then on low heat for 10 minutes



You can insert a skewer or a long spoon into the base and check if it is still very moist, You must get the grease, not moisture. As seen it is still very wet. seal it and put it back on the stove for a few more minutes, Seal back and allow it to rest for another 10 minutes



Sofyani biryani is done. allow a bit to cool down. otherwise, biryani rice may be broken up. fluff the rice up



And transfer to the serving tray/plate



Serve sofyani biryani with raita

Pineapple Orange Banana Smoothie, start your day with this delicious Pineapple Banana Orange Smoothie. It's a glass of tropical sunshine with a slight and refreshing, tanginess. Combine pineapplebanana, and orange juice in a blender. and get an energetic drink

Pineapple Orange Banana was my favorite flavor of juice when I was a kid, but these days we’re more nutrition savvy, and juice is no longer the breakfast staple it once was. Enter the smoothie, complete with all the fiber, and packed with vitamins and minerals

My Latest Video Pineapple Orange Banana Smoothie:

Regular store-bought juice is essentially liquid fruit sugar, and because it’s been pasteurized, you’re missing a lot of the live enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. The great thing about smoothies is they’re so much easier to make than making your own juice first thing in the morning. We try to make a couple of green juices at home every week, but I always rely on smoothies to get plenty of produce from day to day.

I am using canned pineapple slices you can use fresh or frozen as well as orange juice that is available at any superstore you can buy any brand so let’s go ahead, and come to know how to make
