One of the most celebrated classic dishes; biryani is as indulgent as it is flavourful. There are myriad tales surrounding this popular dish. The biryani is a well-travelled dish that has adapted itself to various regions and palettes. One of the most talked-about legends on biryani is about how it was first created by the royal khansamas of Behrouz for their beloved king Piruz.

The khansamas were once asked to prepare a rice dish for some of the royal guests of King Piruz. It had to be gentle, mellow and well-suited for the evolved taste-buds of the royal guests. Hence, the khansamas created a special biryani with seasoned long grain rice that was dum-pukht with artfully balanced spices. It is said that the recipe of this coveted biryani was so closely guarded by the kingdom that it even went to war to keep this biryani recipe a secret.

There are several such tales surrounding biryani but one common factor binding them all is the eternal love for the one-pot meal.
