Biryani is an evergreen classic. India offers so much on its culinary platter, but the one dish Indians unanimously love indulging in is the mouth-watering biryani. Biryani is derived from the Persian word Birian, which means ‘fried before cooking’ and Birinj, the Persian word for rice.
In general, there are two types of biryani – the Kutchi (raw) biryani and the Pukki (cooked) biryani. In Kutchi biryani, the meat is layered with uncooked rice in a handi and cooked, while in Pukki biryani cooked chicken and rice are layered in the handi.
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.
