Rice Biryani and Pilafs – More than just Rice

Biryanis are meat, vegetable or pulse based pilafs cooked with yogurt and spices. For biryani, basmati rice is always used. Basmati rice has thin, fine grains and makes a firm rice grain. For a tastier and authentic biryani ghee is used. Ghee is butter with the milk solids removed and is golden or amber in color.
Biryani is usually accompanied with Dahi ka Raita (a yogurt dish), chutney and kachumber or tomato, onion salad/salsa.

Biryani is often reserved for very special occasions such as weddings, parties and holiday celebrations.
