    Heat up a thava and on the top of the thava place the cooker and leave it in low flame for 15 to 20 minutes in this way the rice will get the flavour of the masala in which the mutton is cooked so the rice even will taste amazing.

    Adding on.. the actual way of preparing Ambur Mutton Briyani is in a thick bottom vessel, many don't own such vessel at home ..and that's the reason I've given the cooker version of cooking.The taste is exactly the same.

    If you own such thick bottom or double bottom can try preparing it in the vessel.The only difference will be you need to cover with a plate to cook mutton, and be instead of whistle you need to wait till the mutton cooks.The rest of procedure be is same as in the preparation.
