Biryani is basically made with meat, chicken, fish, eggs and mixed with many spices and then a layer of white rice is placed on top to cook; sometimes Saffron threads are added as well. Biryani originated in Southern Asia and made by Muslim chefs. Today there are many variations and it has been adopted by many countries, including India where it originated in Hyderabad (Hyderabadi Biryani). Further, it was created at the request of British Officers who wanted a fast meal for their troops. The famous Nizam’s Biryani (from Calcutta) has become one of the best Biryani’s in India and chefs throughout the country strive to match Nizam’s special dishes. Since Biryani’s are often served at banquets, this recipe is a very fancy version.
