The mention of the word Cool in cool briyani masala brings a smile on everybody’s face. An indulgent meal that leaves people feeling guilty but always wanting more. Biryani’s have moved from being expensive and pricey to food that is quick and nutritious and can be served as a business lunch or as convenient takeaway meal at a very reasonable price. Biryani’s come in various hues from brownish to orangish and yellow and everything in between and the tastes can vary from a mildly sweet Kashmiri style biryani to more spicy variants.
The spices and condiments used in biryani may include ghee (clarified butter), nutmeg, mace, pepper, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, coriander, mint leaves, ginger, onions, tomatoes, green chilies, and garlic. The premium varieties include saffron.
