Biryani is believed to be a Persian dish as the word ‘Biryani’ came from Persian ‘Biryan’ meaning fried or roasted before cooking that is the hidden sapor behind this scrumptious dish. Biryani, for centuries now, has been a popular dish among Muslims while moving with them civilization after civilization. It claimed its proper cooking style during the Mughal era and that’s the reason why it is called a “food fit for kings”.
Cooking style of biryani is different for different communities but the main essence behind making of biryani is that rice and meat or vegetables are cooked separately and later, brought together and steamed. The most basic ingredients that each and every Biryani recipe uses are onion, garlic, ghee, mint leaves and most importantly, the ‘Indian Khada masalas’ like the cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg mace, cloves, bay leaves etc. The popular biryani meats are chicken, lamb, mutton, fish, shrimps, quails and sometimes egg and even potatoes.
