Biryani Varieties in India

There is no greater comfort food than Biryani…

If there is one dish which is enjoyed across the length and breadth of India, it is Biryani or rather the many varieties of Biryani. This preparation of rice, meat or vegetables, oil or ghee and spices has the right combination of protein, carbohydrates and fats. Particularly if oil-usage is controlled and lean-meat is used, Biryani is also a healthy food option.

While chicken biryani and mutton biryani are popular among non-vegetarians, vegetable biryanis made with vegetables like cauliflower, carrots, beans and potatoes are also well-liked.

Most of the Biryanis are finished in ‘dum’ style, wherein the final cooking is done over a low flame with the lid sealed to the cooking utensil with ‘atta’ dough.

Variety of Biryanis to tickle your palate…

The extraordinary thing is that there are no less than 9 generic types of biryanis reflecting the cuisine nuances of north, south, east and west of India. We list out in Resources below the variety of famed Biryanis.

Residents of metros like Mumbai and Delhi, have the advantage of being able to taste the entire range of Biryanis, including those which originated in little-known places like Dindigul or Bhatkal.

 

 

Resources
