Biryani recipes - 5 recipes

By Gitanjali Roche

Biryani is a traditional Indian rice dish. The recipe for biryani is similar to pilaf, except that for biryani the rice is cooked separately from the sauce, and then the two are layered and cooked together. There are countless varieties of biryani, including chicken biryani, goat biryani, fish, shrimp, vegetarian, spicy, mild...the list is endless! I love biryani because it's a balanced meal in itself, and can be spiced according to your taste. Biryani is always an impressive dish to serve guests, and you can get especially creative with the presentation. I love to scatter fresh pomegranate seeds on top of the plate before I take it to the table, but you can also try quartered hard-boiled eggs, thinly sliced red onion, almond slivers or even chopped red and green chilies to add a colorful touch. Our biryani recipes are a great introduction to Indian food; full of warm spices and exotic aromas. Not to mention, biryani is the ultimate comfort food for rice lovers.
