Dan pauk – Biryani


Biryani (dan pauk)

This is an update I should have made 3 weeks ago, when my family ordered Burmese biryani from a pretty well known Indian-Burmese guy who caters this SINGLE dish for a living. (I hate that his dog follows him inside our house when he delivers the trays but that’s another story altogether.) Now, mind you, cooking biryani is no easy task and only Indians are good at making it, because the spice mix is complicated and there’s yogurt involved too, which explains why my mom never even attempts to make this on her own.

Long grained rice, curry-marinated chicken, raisins, cashew nuts, a ton of spices and turmeric. Eaten with a salad of zested onions and cucumber and a dollop of mango pickle.
