Hyderabadi Biryani: This Is How You Do It (Right)!


So, if you know one interesting fact about me, I hope it might have something to do with Hyderabadi Biryani, or in particular, the fact that I can make it.  From scratch. The kind that willl leave you stunned at the fact that you didn’t know how impossibly amazing that dish could be.  And leave you talking about it forever. šŸ™‚

Well, that’s the kind I make.  For all special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc. I obvioulsy made it this past Christmas.

So, this is a step-by-step slideshow of the very many steps of this many-layered dish.  You’ll have to get your own recipe, or guesstimate the measures from the pictures here, but the sequence is critical to success.  This is a huge degchi (pot) that holds about 20 lbs.  The pictures are all captioned so you can see what’s what.

The best part, however, is serving it up with love for the ones you love!  Oh, and the papads/appalams, pudina chutney and the boondi raita are the consummate accompaniments to the dish.

Bon Appetit! Or, like we say around here:  Yeh Hui Na Baat!

  1. Thanks for sharing… you make it look incredibly simple. I will try it this weekend. I am on my 5th attempt to make Hyderabadi biriyani… other 4 have been less than stellar. Your approach seems more predictable.- Sunny

  2. Sunny! So nice to see your comments here! Please do try it and let me know how it goes. It does take some careful prep to get everything organized ahead of time, and having the right size of pots and pans is equally important. Here’s wishing you the very best! simmi
