Biryani simply is an amalgamation of five tbsp royalty along with delectable array of cultures mixed with long grained rice. Being the evergreen classic of every occasion, it has been unanimously loved by every culture, religion and state. It has been a staple diet for the army and has adorned the jewel studded thalis in the royal court alike. The aroma, taste and the appearance of Biryani intrigued the emperors for it to be included as the royal dish in the menu for centuries.

The word BIRYANI has been derived from the Persian word 'Birian' which means fried before cooking and Birinj is the persian word for rice. There are multiple legends relating to Biryani which was originally brought to our kitchens by the Mughals. The art of cooking biryani pretty much requires the precision about the quantity, spices and timing.

The method used to prepare the authentic biryani is through 'dum pukht' 'Larhmeen' or slow oven cooking in which food is tightly sealed and cooked over slow fire. The authentic taste has undergone minor modifications and refinements by every region, community and socio- economic conditions in India. The medieval period saw layering of spices, meat and long grained brown rice to begin with further it saw the rice being replaced with scented and aged basmati rice. In south India, local varieties like Kaima or jeeraka shala, provide their own distinct flavour and texture to the dish. The meat vary from goat, sheep, poultry, beef, eggs to seafood like fish, prawns and crab. Fragrance heightens its appeal, one can also find biryani scented with rosewater, edible ittar or kewra water and saffron.

Based on early Persian kitchen culture all the ingredients are put together in an earthen pot in case of a veg biryani and the wheat dough is spread over the container like a lid, to seal the food. The sealing of lid with dough is termed as 'Maturing' and this seal is called 'purdah' or veil. The other aspect is 'roasting' which is a slow process of persuading each ingredient to slowly release its maximum flavour. Another important factor is the lower calorie count in this method of cooking. Dum or steam cooking is a slow process wherein food retain all its natural aromas and gets filled with the richness and nutrients of its ingredients.

Biryani has always been associated with a misconception that it is the numero un dish for non- vegetarians folks the most famous ones being Hyderabadi chicken biryani and Lucknowi chicken biryani. Considering this fact veg biryani is side lined from the options available, it is in fact a very healthy and scrumptious dish keeping in mind the benefits of dum cooking. The most favoured options in veg biryani are Hyderabadi and Lucknowi veg biryani, as the name suggests they hail from the cities having a royal past in itself. There are now a number of platforms/apps/sites in major cities which are serving the authentic veg biryani taste online directly at your doorstep. The zaika or flavour in these biryani are running across through generations in every nook and corner of this country which are cooked in handis using Dum Pukht.
