Biryani Box



The classic Hyderabadi style biryani is a thing of beauty.  I first came across this recipe whilst travelling through India in 2006, an elderly street hawker was selling the biryani from a little hut to travellers. I went to take a closer look at what everyone was crowding around and that’s when I smelt the beautifully aromatic rice dish. Layers of aged basmati cooked with a plethora of aromatic spices and tender morsels of slow cooked goat. I reached into my wallet and walked away a bowl of biryani and piece of paper with the recipe. I’ve been cooking this recipe now since 2006 and I take pride in saying that I was the first to introduce the goat biryani to Birmingham all those years back!

This recipe has become a favourite of our guests at Opheem and all my chef friends who often request this when they visit the restaurant. So after many requests we’ve decided to create a biryani kit that will have all the components for you recreate this at home. It’s a fantastic centre piece dish for any dinner party or for a hearty family meal.
