Which is best for biryani?

Basmati rice is the most commonly used rice for biryani as it has a delicate, nutty flavour and a distinct aroma that complements the spices and flavours in the dish.

Which type of biryani is special?

Also known as the ‘Awadhi biryani’, the Lucknowi Biryani stands out due to its cooking style, known as dum pukht. The meat (or chicken) infused with spices is partially cooked separately from rice, which is flavoured with saffron, star anise and cinnamon.
