The festive period of the year has officially kick started. What makes our country exceptionally special is the spirit with which we celebrate festivals of all religions. Today the nation celebrates the holy festival of Eid-ul-Adha. On this special occasion a sheep or a goat is sacrificed to pay tribute to Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son to God’s command. 


All the devotees celebrate the festival of Eid-ul-Adha by buying new clothes, visiting mosques and wishing each other. Devotees also help the underprivileged by donating food, shelter and aid to them on this auspicious day. The meat from the sacrifice is divided into three parts which is divided amongst the relatives, friends and the poor. 


Biryani is one of the most traditional and stand out delicacies of the Muslims. They have a way of preparing this lip-smacking dish which can easily bring peace to your soul. On this auspicious day we bring to you some delicious biryani recipes which is super easy to prepare and it’s going to be a complete delight.  


Lucknowi biryani 

This biryani is also known as ‘Awadhi biryani’ and its speciality comes from the way it is cooked which is known as ‘dum phukt’. The meat is first cooked separately with wholesome spices. The rice is then separately cooked with star anise, cinnamon and saffron. The meat and rice are then layered and cooked for hours and hours together till the flavours are infused properly. 



Sindhi biryani

Originated in the Sindh province, this spicy version of the biryani is made up of roasted spices, chopped chillies, onions and sour yoghurt. Dried fruits, nuts, mints are also used in order to make the biryani flavourful and aromatic. 


Hyderabadi Biryani 

There are two types of Hyderabadi biryani - one which is the kacchi biryani and the other is the pakki biryani. The pakki biryani is wherein the meat and rice is cooked separately and is then layered together. In the kacchi biryani, the marinated raw meat is placed between layers of rice with fried onions and dried fruits and is slowly cooked in a dough sealed pot. 



Parsi Biryani 

This sweet and tangy biryani is great for everyone who loves the “khatta-meetha” flavour. The Parsi biryani is iconic to the community and the recipe is made up of meat (chicken or mutton), dried plums, spiced potatoes and screw pine or kewra paani. 



Calcutta Biryani

Drawing inspiration from the Awadhi biryani is the Calcutta style biryani. It is heavily loaded with flavours of sweetness than it being spicy. It is cooked with yellow based rice layered with yoghurt based meat, potatoes and soft boiled eggs. 


It is definitely said that you can never get rid or bored of too much of biryani. Infact no such thing ever exists. Biryani is traditionally eaten with a “saalan”, khucumbur or raita which enhances the spicy flavour even more.
