This month’s daring cooks challenge was about Biryani. Biryani is a rice-based dish made with spices, rice (usually basmati) and chicken, mutton, fish, eggs, or vegetables.The name is derived from the Persian word beryān which means “fried” or “roasted”.
Grace, one of our talented non-blogging Daring Kitchen members, was our Daring Cooks’ August hostess who shared with us some of her family’s tried and true Bengali Biryani recipes – all of them delicious and all of them prepared fresh from our own kitchens!
This was my second time making Biryani and my first time making chicken biryani (the first was meat biryani). In my first attempt I used a ready made biryani spice mix that turned out to be too spicy. We couldn’t even finish the meal. This time around I was determined to make a biryani the entire family would enjoy. For guidance I used the challenge recipe, my friend Manu’s Hyderabadi chicken recipe and my friend Suhad’s biryani recipe. The aroma of the herbs and spices made everyone hungry as the biryani was cooking. We all had great expectations for this chicken biryani and it did not disappoint, even my four year old son enjoyed it immensely .
