About the product

This most delicious of celebratory dishes combines both north Indian (Mughlai) and Persian (Nawab) influences to create a basmati based dish of world renown. Lucknow was the capital of the Oudh, or Awadh region of Northern India ruled back in the day by the opulent Nawabs. It’s also the place my father studied in his youth and a place he’d often take us back to as a family, to discover the delights of the myriad of street food carts on offer, eating from as many of the wallahs as we could muster.

My biryani combines the heady fragrance of green cardamom, saffron, mace, nutmeg, warmth of beautiful black pepper and fresh ginger with aged sweet, delicate basmati rice, rich curd and tender chicken. A fantastic dish created for royal palaces and great state banquets made to share great for family celebrations, get togethers or simply cook to freeze in batches ready to defrost and pop into the microwave when you feel like a pick-me-up treat!
