Biryani, the name of this dish itself makes you hungry! Right? From Lucknow to Rajasthan to Andhra Pradesh, there are different types of lip smacking Biryanis, that differs in taste and flavour due to the use of local spices and different styles of cooking. For instance, Rajasthani Biryani is high on dry spices whereas Kolkata Biryani has potato in it. From North Indian Dum Biryani and South Indian Donne Biryani, each and every Biryani is absolutely delicious.
For this meal plate, we have made a special Biryani, Mutton Dum Biryani, where there are different layers of marinated mutton, half cooked rice, saffron milk, mint leaves, coriander leaves and caramelised onions. Dum Pukht Method is used to make this Biryani, where the Biryani utensil is sealed with whole wheat dough and is cooked over a slow heat. Marinated Mutton is kept aside for an hour, so that the mutton soaks up all the flavour of spicy marination masala.
This Biryani is served along with Ande Ka Salan, which is a peanut and coconut based gravy especially served along with Biryani. You can make any other Salan also to serve along with this Biryani such as Baingan Ka Salan, Bhindi Ka Salan etc. To end the meal, we have a simple Raita, Tomato Onion Cucumber Raita which will enhance the taste of your Biryani even more. You can also add a tadka in this raita to add some more flavour and taste.
