Whenever i die i would love to die with a spoon full of Biryani in my mouth! The only mutton delicacy i believe is worth dying for is non other than Biryani. Slow cooked meat with whole spices and curd when comes with long grain rice, the flavor and the aroma is simply unbeatable. My love for biryani mainly begun when i was in college. Despite of being born and brought up in a Muslim family, Biryani has though been one of our staple food, still the journey of falling in love with the delicacy started after i went to Bhopal for my higher studies.
Bhopal serves it’s own traditional biryani that is adapted from the Nawabs of the region. The texture is light and the flavours are mild. You may not like it much as it tastes more like mutton tahri. But my journey started from a restaurant in Bhopal that use to serve authentic Hyderabadi Biryani. The layered biryani with authentic flavors adapted from the Nizami culture of Hyderabad was something to die for. I still remember the moment i use to get a leave from my college, me and few of my friends use to run straight away to the restaurant to enjoy the hyderabadi dum biryani. Slow cooked meat in sour curd takes hell lot of a time to cook but it’s anyday worth the wait. In hyderabadi biryani, cinnamom and the spices have a prominent flavor. Sometimes it’s hard to judge that which spice is giving more aroma to the dish. So after all this description, who won’t like to make some for yourself and family. To put on your kitchen aprons and sharpen your knife. Pick this flawless recipe and make your weekend special.
