When you think of a one-meal Indian dish that satisfies all your senses, it has to be the aromatic dum biryani.
And when you start to question, “where it came to India from?” you begin to recognize the diversity and vibrancy of Indian food.
Most historians believe Biryani came to India from Persia. And there is little reason to think otherwise. In fact, the word biryani comes from “birinj biriyan” which means fried rice.
We proudly serve the most authentic “dum biryani” at our restaurants. Dum is a cooking style in which the “deg” (pot) is put on dum (slow cooking to allow the marinated meats to cook in its juices and is flawlessly layered with long-grained basmati rice and aromatic spices), and the rice is gently fried.
The Mughals brought biryani to India. Today, there are many varieties of this dish, named after the cities in which they were recreated.
Biryani is a celebratory meal fit for kings, and its aroma indeed makes it a delightful dish that indulges all your senses.
Formerly a dish made with meat and rice, we have been able to create a delicious vegetarian biryani that is as flavorful as its non-vegetarian counterpart.
Our biryani recipe follows the Hyderabadi dum biryani. It is accompanied with raita – yogurt with a mix of spices. Watch the video below to see how our chefs have mastered the art of preparing a perfect sensory delight – the famous dum biryani.
