7 Best Biryani Takeaways that Chennai swears by!

Are Karan Arjun back? Did they just reconcile over a Biryani? While the khans’ tweets of the same circulate, we’ve got our noses sniffing for the ‘Biryani’! :) So lot’s can happen over a Biryani as well?!

While dal could be called India’s comfort food, what about Biryani – national food? :) Biryani, the medley of spices and flavors, is one dish that you’d find at just about every nook and corner of the country. The varieties are huge. Every region has its own version. South India alone is loaded with every district having it’s distinct version. Hyderabadi, Sindhi, Bombay, Dindigul, Ambur and the list goes on. So there it is. From the spiciest of the Biryani’s to the oh so bland ones, each has it’s own fan following!

Just in case you’re stepping out, check out lip smacking Biryani varieties at restaurants near you on Relishious. Andriod|iOS
