Our biryani is a food connoisseurs delight. A combination of the choicest ingredients – fresh spices, meats and long grain basmati rice – it’s also a one-dish meal. You can eat it while on the go or savour it with family and friends at our restaurant in Navi Mumbai.

The biryani is a dish that appeals to many but so few know of its origin. It is said that the biryani came from Iran. The Persians called it “birain” which means fried before cooking.
Another story traces the biryani to the Mughal court of Shah Jehan. Once on a visit to the army barracks Mumtaz Mahal, the inspiration behind the TajMahal, was shocked to find the soldiers undernourished. She ordered the chefs to make a special dish that had to be nutritious and tasty to feed the troops. Thus the biryani was born.
Master chefs from the Mughal court introduced the dumpukht style of cooking biryani. This is a traditional method of slow cooking on hot coal. The food is placed in a tightly sealed cooking pot and charcoal is put on the lid to distribute the heat evenly.
We, at Biryani Guru, use not only the dumpukht style but also the dhungar method. Here the food is smoked to add flavour. Aromatic oil and spices are added to burning charcoal. The smoke from this oil creates a special fragrance that is added to the cooked dish.
