Biryani has always been integral to every festival and special day as a favourite meal. Moreover, different types of biryanis are cooked using other recipes and techniques. Some of the most famous ones are the Mutton Keema Biryani, Hyderabadi Biryani, Chicken Biryani and so on. You will be surprised to know that Persians brought the Biryani to India. However, its recipe was introduced by the Mughals. Since then, we have been enjoying this great dish.
In India, several different types of Biryani are served, which derive their names from the city of origin. These include Kolkata Biryani, Hyderabadi dum biryani, Bombay Biryani, Awadhi Biryani, and so on. With a mix of unique herbs, textures, and flavours, they all stand out when it comes to taste and aroma!
What is Keema Biryani?
Mutton Mince Biryani is a mix of unmatched flavours that combine boiled rice and mutton keema or mutton mince. The use of premium quality rice and fresh keema enhances its overall flavour. Using flavourful herbs, fresh spices, and other ingredients adds a royal touch to the dish. The history of Mutton Keema Biryani dates back a few years.
Biryani was first cooked for the then Emperor of Hyderabad, Nizam-Ul-Malik. His chef prepared 50 types of Biryani using quail, fish, and even venison or deer meat. After tasting them all, the Nizam was most impressed. Today, there are many variants of biryani including egg, chicken, mutton, prawn, fish and of course, keema biryani.
