Biryani is an evergreen delicacy that never fails to impress the taste buds of Indians. And not just Indians, biryani has made a mark on the palate of people from across the world. It's aromatic, heavenly and one of the most loved delicacies - be it at a party or at home for a comfort meal. While it is believed that Mughals were the first to introduce biryani in North India, South India was exposed to its brilliance through the Arabs. The one-pot rice dish flourished across the country - including Lucknow, old Delhi and Hyderabad, to name a few - after which it was gradually embraced by all.  

The best part is that biryani comes in many varieties. For instance, chicken biryani, mutton biryani, veg biryani, paneer biryani and more. Each variety is unique to every region.
