BRIYANI- EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Biryani is an evergreen classic that really needs no
introduction. So if you are a die-hard fan of this
delicious dish, take things up a notch and tease your
taste buds a little more with the story of what
makes biryani so extraordinary.

BRIYANI- EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

It may sound strange that it’s not a desi dish in
complete sense. In reality the dish originated quite
far away. Biryani is derived from the Persian
word Birian, which means ‘fried before cooking’ and
Birinj, the Persian word for rice. While there are
multiple theories about how biryani made its way to
India, it is generally accepted that it originated in
West Asia.

The dish was brought to the southern Malabar coast of
India by Arab traders who were frequent visitors there.
There are records of a rice dish known as Oon Soru in
Tamil literature as early as the year 2 A.D. Oon Soru
was said to be made of rice, ghee, meat, turmeric,
coriander, pepper, and bay leaf, and was used to feed
military warriors..

However, the most popular story traces the origins of
the dish to Mumtaz Mahal, Shah Jahan’s beautiful
queen who inspired the Taj Mahal. It is said that
Mumtaz once visited the army barracks and found the
Mughal soldiers looking weak and undernourished. She
asked the chef to prepare a special dish that combined
meat and rice to provide balanced nutrition to the
soldiers – and the result was biryani of course!

BRIYANI- EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

The evolution of biryani spans many centuries, many
cultures, many ingredients and many cooking styles.

today is a pan-India culinary favourite. Its many
varieties reflect the local tastes, traditions and
gastronomic histories of their regions of evolution

BRIYANI- EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Mughlai Biriyani:
Succulent chunks of perfectly spiced meat,
enveloped in kewra scented rice, emanate an
irresistible aroma that makes one hungry
instantly.

Hyderabadi Briyani:
While most other biryanis are dominated by their
flavoured meat, in the layered Hyderabadi
biryani, the aromatic saffron flavored rice is the
star of the dish.

BRIYANI- EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Calcutta Briyani:
Much lighter on spices, this biryani primarily uses
a yoghurt based marinade for the meat, which is
cooked separately from the light yellow rice. Also,
just like most Bengali dishes, the Calcutta biryani
has a hint of sweetness hidden in it.

Dindugal Briyani:
The jeera samba rice used in making this biryani
is distinctive and gives it an entirely different
flavour. Curd and lemon lend the biryani its tangy
taste, while the liberal use of pepper leaves its
fiery mark on the palate.
