Exotic Ingredients in Biryani

What makes a Biryani so special? Is it the delicate quality of the rice, or the vibrant taste of classic Indian spices or the well-cooked juicy & tender meat?

It’s impossible to give credit to one particular ingredient because ‘Biryani’, as we know, is a Kaleidoscope of colours – A mixture of different ingredients coming together to create that magical experience.

A Biryani in its finest form can be cooked only if there is a perfect balance between the ingredients – The rich taste of the rice which is blended in the essence of rose water or Kesar, the Indian spices that add flavor to Biryani & the vegetables and meat with their rich texture need to create a balance amongst themselves to cook a delicious Biryani.



While, selecting the rice, it’s important that you choose the right type of rice. Basmati, Zeera Samba, Golden Sela, Kaima & Kala Bhat are some of the types of rice that are used extensively in Biryanis across India. They bring with them, their distinct taste, aroma & texture to the Biryani.

A Biryani would taste bland if it was not for the flavorsome spices. The aromatic spices that differ from region to region come together to give Biryani the tantalizing taste we experience. Coriander Seeds, Cinnamon, Ginger, Black Pepper, Fennel Seed, Cumin Seed, Chilli, Cardamom Green, Nutmeg and Cloves are some of the well known spices used in a Biryani.



The texture of the vegetables & the meat is also responsible for the delicious taste of Biryani. You need to select fresh vegetables so that the flavor of the vegetable cooks well with the Biryani. Meat such as prawns & fish needs little time to cook while chicken & mutton takes a while to cook well. So before cooking the meat with the Biryani make sure that the meat is well cooked & marinated in the spices.

Now that you know about the exotic ingredients that creates a magical mixture called Biryani, it’s time that you come and taste the Biryani in the royal essence of the Hyderbadi ingredients. So come taste and experience the world famous Hyderabadi Biryani at Paradise, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.
