Biryani, also known as biriyani, biriani, birani or briyani, is a mixed rice dish with its origins among the Muslims of the Indian subcontinent.

It can be compared to mixing a curry, later combining it with semi-cooked rice separately.

This dish is especially popular throughout the Indian subcontinent, as well as among the diaspora from the region.

It is also prepared in other regions such as Iraqi Kurdistan and is made with Indian spices, rice, meat, vegetables or eggs.

This 250g jar will cook with approximately 20kg of meat, vegetables or seafood – 100 servings.
