Keynote: A delectable collection of 100 authentic biryani recipes
About the Book: Briyani
The biryani is India's most beloved dish-one that has spread to all the four cornersof the country and assumed many forms.
It originated in the Mughal courts, flowering in the jagirs of Awadh, and it is in Lucknow, Delhi andthe small Muslim principalities of north India that one finds the classic versions, subtle, refined, anddelicately flavoured. Pratibha Karan gives us not just the definitive recipes from these regions butunearths rare and old dishes such as a biryani made with oranges, Rose Biryani and Kebab Biryani.In the south, the biryani has an equally distinguished lineage, if not more so. There are the bluebloodedbiryanis of Hyderabad which include gems such as the Doodh ki Biryani, Keeme ki biryaniand Bater ki biryani. Away from the royal courts, the biryani has adapted itself into a spicy localdelicacy in Tamil Nadu, with many towns like Salem, Aambur, Dindigul boasting of their ownsignature version of the dish. Kerala too is home to many - a prawn biryani spiced with curry leavesand aniseed, a mutton one laced with star anise.
There are as many stunning variations in the east and west-Goan biryanis using vinegar andolives; unusual dishes from the Parsi and Sindhi communities; Bengali adaptations using fish andmustard seeds, even a dish from Assam!
Immaculately researched, full of extraordinary recipes, and beautifully designed and photographed,Biryani is the ultimate book on this princely dish.
