This is festive season and no festival is complete with out good food.So today’s recipe is a delicious Kozhikodan biriyani.This is not a new post I am updating My old post “Kozhikodan Biriyani”
There are mainly two types of famous Biriyanis in Malabar (Kerala,South India).One is the Kozhikodan(Calicut) Biriyani and the other is Thalassery biriyani.Both are almost same but slightly different in layering,and another difference is the way of using caramelized onions..
Biriyani is basically a rice based dish,rice blended with meat or poultry.According to Ummi Abdullah The famous biriyani must have been brought from Samarkhand by the Moghuls and the indigenous Muslim rulers of Arcot and Mysore.
The Kozhikodan biriyani is famous for its special taste and aroma.The main ingredients of this delicious biriyani is chicken ,ghee,spices and the special khaima rice(jeeraka sala).The Malabar biriyani needs variety of spices like nutmeg, cardamom, cloves ,cinnamon, fennel etc.The biriyani is a quite heavy food,because a lot of ghee is adding .but I used small amount of ghee you can adjust the amount of ghee as per your preference.always use oil for making the masala and ghee for preparing rice so you wont feel the food too much oily. and the method of cooking is dum,hope all of you will enjoy the delicious kozhikodan biriyani.
So “Eid” is near fill your home with the nice fragrance of kozhikodan biriyani
“wish you all avery very happy Eid”
