No matter how much you love continental food, one can definitely not survive without relishing on a big plate of perfectly cooked biryani with a bowl of freshly cut salad and mint sauce. Ever wondered if Biryani could be cooked in different ways? Here are a few types of your favorite dish you should give a try.
1. Prawn Biryani
If you are fond of both, seafood and the traditional flavors of biryani, you need to try one of these epic biryanis. It is basically a unique blend of yogurt, cream, spices, and of course prawns, sandwiched between layers of half-boiled rice, sealed, and cooked together for the perfect mix of flavors.
2. Fried Chicken Biryani
A little different from the usual chicken biryani, but definitely a treat for your taste buds. In this biryani, the chicken is marinated and fried separately. The fried chicken is then mixed with the gravy which is prepared with all the spices, yogurt, onions, and tomatoes. This is the basic part which sets the flavor of the dish apart.
3. Scheherezade Biryani
This is an Iranian style, mildly spiced biryani with a generous amount of nuts and pieces of fish. The aroma of rose water, raisins, cashews, and fried onions is the distinguishing factor of this biryani, widely enjoyed by those who love middle eastern cuisine.
4. Chicken Biryani with Coconut Milk
A splash of coconut milk to the biryani not only adds creamy texture but also brings a rich flavor to the dish. To steal praises from your guests, serve it with mint raita, lemon wedges, and fried onions.
5. Vegetable Biryani
As much as it sounds like a sin to not include meat in biryani, mixed vegetable biryani can be as tasty as the regular biryani. It is a boldly flavored rice dish with peas, potatoes, bell peppers, carrots, onions, and tomatoes, cooked in dum biryani style. You are more likely to enjoy it with green chutney or plain yogurt.
