Well, this is part two in a series of three posts devoted to reiterating the notion that food is love is food. And if you’re lost already, not to worry, I shall explain. The 2011 ICC World Cup win by India yesterday is so sweet a victory that it produces the most intense of such emotions, you see, and so after the Breakfast of Champions post that was offered up yesterday, I must now offer up an account of the food-celebrations of the rest of the day. So, what could possibly be better than Hyderabadi Biryani on an occasion so grand? Nothing, I know. And so Biryani, it was.
The last time I made this meal was last Christmas. Click here for a lovely refresher. And rest assured that the modus operandi for yesterday’s making of this divine dish was no different.
So, here’s to India’s love of cricket, and her mastery of it. And here’s to Hyderabadi Biryani, the way God intended it. If Sachin were to have a bite of it, know what he would say? He’d say: Yeh Hui Na Baat!
