Authentic Muslim Biryani that has been passed down over generation of her family. Biryani is a South Asian one-pot dish in which lamb or mutton or beef or chicken or a mixture of vegetables is layered with rice. The layering technique is what differentiates biryani from other rice dishes, like a pilaf or pulao. Tantalizing aromas are infused into the meat and the rice using a combination of spices, herbs, and extracts, while saffron threads add bright hues of orange and yellow. The result is a highly aromatic and colorful dish of meat and rice. There are a lot of variations of biryani—like Bombay biryani, Hyderabadi biryani, etc.—as recipes and taste preferences can be quite different from region to region and even household to household.
