Pulao and Biryani

Pulao is a dish in which a grain, such as rice or wheat, is browned in oil, and then cooked in a seasoned liquid. Depending on the local cuisine, it may also contain a variety of meat and vegetables.

Biryani ,in its simplest form is an preparation in which partially cooked rice and meat/vegetables are cooked together in a sealed container over very slow flame.

It was brought to India by Taimur- in 14th century. And gradually, combined with the Indian Pulao and sometimes considered to be of Indian origin.

This is a wonderful aromatic preparation where each grain of the finest long – grained Basmati rice has its individual fragrance.The spices and condiments used in biryani includes ghee, saffron, cumin, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, coriander, mint leaves, ginger, onions, and garlic. For a non-vegetarian biryani, the main ingredient that accompanies the spices is the meat— chicken, goat, lamb, or sea foods. The dish may be served with Raita, korma or curry.
