Almost everyone is a biryani lover, but when we try to ask something about biryani from them, they are completely blank from the inside. In case you are also a biryani lover and know nothing about the history, tradition, cooking style, and other such factors of biryani, then this post is for you.

At Hyderabad House, the best Indian Restaurant in Quakers Hill, we have chefs with a precise knowledge of biryani and the traditional cooking methods used.

And in this blog, we are going to share their knowledge with you so that you get to learn about biryani and more.

Traditional Flavours of India in Biryani

 We all know that biryani is one such Indian dish that was discovered during the time of the Mughals, and the Mughal kings used to bring chefs from different parts of India with the help of which they were able to cook various types of biryani.

Not just that, the Mughal kings would bring chefs from two or more different locations and ask them to cook biryani, with the help of which we got the traditional flavors of India in biryani.

Most people are unaware of this fact, but the tehri biryani was specially created by those people who were not eating mutton or non-veg biryani.

Traits of a Good Biryani

 By cooking biryani a number of times, you will surely start cooking a good biryani, but when we cook Indian food in Quakers Hill at Hyderabad House, we never forget the fact that good quality raw materials and the right amount of spices are also crucial for a perfect biryani.

Let us have a look at some of those trains of good biryani that you should keep in mind so that you can get the best biryani:

  • If you add fresh raw materials, which are fresh vegetables and meat that is properly cut, you will notice an enhanced flavor in your biryani.
  • If you want to cook biryani in the north Indian style, then make sure to use long-grain rice. If you want to cook biryani in the south Indian style, then you should use short-grain rice.
  • Make sure that everything in your biryani is in adequate amounts. No matter if we are talking about chicken marination, spices, curd, herbs, or other ingredients.
  • The final trait of a good biryani is its aroma, and on the basis of the perfect spices and ingredients, you will be able to get that exceptional smell from your biryani.

There are a number of people who will add a lot of chicken pieces to their biryani for a better taste, which is a good thing. But if we precisely think about it, then there is a proper limit to the amount of chicken that can be added to the biryani so that you can also get the proper taste of rice as well.
