Biryani at its best
Biryani was brought to India by the Mughals. This slow cooked rice with fresh spices and chunks of meat, eggs and vegetables soon became a hot favourite amongst the people of India. In Eastern India, particularly in West Bengal the dish developed its own style. Introduced by Awadh's last Nawab Wajid Ali Shah, the addition of potatoes and boiled eggs to this delicacy was purely an innovation that rose from the poorer households being forced to add these in place of the more expensive meat. Today, Biryani has become one of the most preferred dishes ordered at a restaurant, eaten at parties or made at home!
