140/365 – Hyderabadi Biriyani

Hyderabadi Biryani is a Hyderabadi biryani dish made with basmati rice and goat meat. Popular variations use chicken instead of goat.

The blending of Mughlai and Andhra Pradesh cuisines in the kitchens of the Nizam, ruler of the historic Hyderabad State, resulted in the creation of Hyderabadi Biryani.


The ingredients are basmati rice, meat, yogurt, onions, spices, lemon, saffron. Coriander and fried onions used as garnish. The preferred meat is lamb, goat or chicken.


Hyderabadi biryani is of three types,
the Kacchi (raw) Biryani,
the Jappu (raw) Biryani and
the Pakki biryani.


A biryani is accompanied with Dahi chutney (yogurt and onions); Mirchi ka salan – a green chili curry. It may also be accompanied by Bagare Baingan (Roasted Eggplant). The salad includes onion, carrot, cucumber, and lemon wedges.
