Biryani

Biryani also known as biriyani or biriani, is a mixed rice dish with its origins among the Muslims of the Indian subcontinent. It is generally made with spices, rice, and meat.

The spices used in biryani include  nutmeg, pepper, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, coriander, onions, tomatoes, and garlic. In all biryani, the main ingredient that accompanies the spices is chicken or mutton; special varieties also use beef and seafood. The dish is often served with chutney or raita, curry sauce, a sour dish of aubergine (brinjal), boiled egg (optional), and salad.

One of the best places to get Biryani in Singapore is the Tekka Centre in Little India. If you are taking a food tour with us we’ll point out some of the best ones to you!
