This curry is a beautiful dish to serve at a buffet style party. Whilst being tasty it also presents well and is easy for guests to serve themselves.
Traditionally this is a muslim curry from the capital of Hyderabad in the province of Andhra Pradesh. It is different to a pulao, in that is not just an Indian style fried rice, it is a layered dish of basmati rice and curry.
When presented on a platter with a side dish of raita and some Indian chutney, it makes a yummy addition to any dinner or party.
The first layer is made up of basmati rice topped with curried chicken or lamb pieces, this is then garnished with fried onions, sliced hard boiled eggs and tomatoes, followed again by another layer of basmati rice. To finish it off, it is decadently garnished with fried nuts and raisins.
Historically, the Nizams of the Hyderabad state where responsible for the development of the Hyderabadi cuisine. It was derived from the royalty banquets and festivals, where they would commonly serve up to 26 varieties of biryani’s for their guests. Originally the biryani dish is an amalgamation of Mughlai, Turkish and Arabic cuisine, along with the influence of the native Telugu and Marathwada cuisines.
Traditionally, the biryani is cooked in a Dum pukht. This means, that the dish is cooked in a pot that is sealed with dough, then simmered gently over a slow cooking fire to increase the absorption of aromatic spices. Firstly, the mutton or chicken is sealed with all the spices on a hot fire. To put it all together, and finish off the cooking process, the biryani is layered in the Dum pukht. Rice on the bottom then topped with the sealed meat, then rice again. Saffron that has been soaked in water (the aromatic water) is drizzled over the top to add moisture; the pot is sealed then slow cooked over a fire.

How to use a Glaze:
When cooking meat, either on the BBQ, in an oven or a smoker, generously pour glaze over uncooked meat in a dish and with clean hands, turn the meat over to ensure that it is liberally coated on all sides.
For the oven and smoker, cover the meat and cook following the usual cooking instructions. Uncover for the last quarter of the cooking time to allow the sauce to reduce and the sweet stickiness to develop. Re-coat now to personal preference, if required.
On the Barbecue, just cook on the plate or over the grill. The glaze will darken and look burned but that’s okay – and awesome. If making kebabs, thread the meat (and vegetables) through the skewer and brush the glaze over with a pastry brush, then pop them straight on the barbie!
Just sprinkle these Buffalo Crystals directly onto your wings, to taste, right after baking or frying.
To create a Buffalo-style Wing Sauce, simply mix equal parts of Buffalo Crystals with White Vinegar and melted butter, then mix to create a delicious sauce and toss your cooked wings through, coating fully.
Serve with Blue Cheese or Ranch dressing – Enjoy!
