What is Parsi Mutton Pulao? 

The mutton berry pulao or the mutton Parsi pulao recipe is the authentic way of making pulao or mutton biryani in Persia. Although it is similar to the traditional way of making mutton biryani, the ingredients differ. Moreover, the method does not entirely resemble the traditional one as well.

The old way of making this Parsi pulao recipe was somewhat complicated and time-consuming. It also used many ingredients that are not readily available in recent times. Hence, this Parsi mutton recipe was adapted to suit contemporary times. It uses saffron strands, bay leaves, star anise, cinnamon, and other aromatic spices that make the rice richer and more flavourful.
