Beyond Flavor: Here’s how biryani binds these celebs together World Biryani Day

Fragrant and flavourful rice dish is more than just food. It’s a cultural touchstone, a reason for celebration, and a delicious way to connect with loved ones. In honour of World Biryani Day, these celebrities tell us why they love biryani!

Gulfam Khan Hussain: Biryani is my staple food. There is nothing that tastes better than Baasi Biryani, the Biryani cooked on one day and consumed on the next. I love lamb meat Biryani because it is juicy and delicious. I simply cannot wrap my head around the concept of veg Biryani. Hence, when I have vegetarian friends over, it is either veg pulao or, if someone insists on Biryani made by me, it’s Kathal Biryani. It’s a complete meal, and when fried potatoes are added to it, WALLAH! LAJAWAAB! There are various kinds of Biryanis: Yakhni, warki, dum, awadhi, Kalkatta, Dakhni, Hyderabad, and many more. It’s mouthwatering to even think about it.

Ashok Kumar Beniwal: World Biryani Day isn’t just about a dish; it’s a time to share stories, laughter, and create lasting memories with loved ones. This year, I rolled up my sleeves, followed a YouTube recipe, and hosted a biryani feast at home. Moments like these, where food becomes a bridge to shared laughter and cherished memories, truly make life delicious.

Celesti Bairagey: As someone who absolutely adores rice in every form, especially on World Biryani Day, I can’t help but celebrate the rich flavours and cultural significance of this beloved dish. Biryani isn’t just food; it’s a celebration itself, perfect for cozy gatherings and cherished moments with loved ones. Whether it’s the joy of preparing it at home with friends or family or relishing it at gatherings with them, biryani holds a special place in my heart.

Kashish Duggal: Biryani - the universal language of food! This savoury rice delight never fails to impress, whether I’m hosting a house party or satisfying my cravings. With its rich flavors and aromatic spices, biryani has won hearts globally. On this World Biryani Day, let’s celebrate the unity and joy that this beloved dish brings to our tables and our lives. Here’s to the rice that binds us together! ‘Happy World Biryani Day! May your plate be filled with love, your taste buds be danced with delight, and your belly be happy and content!’

Seema Kapoor: Biryani is one of my most favourite dishes. I relish it to the core. It’s quite filling too and one of the best options for parties and get-togethers. I love to cook it in the Punjabi style, and it’s yum. I guess every generation loves it.

Sachin Parikh: There are so many who consider that biryani is only a non-veg dish, and any veg biryani is considered as pulao and not Biryani!! However, I do not fall into this category, being a vegetarian. Still, Veg Biryani is one of my favourite dishes. It’s always a reliable dish when you are in groups and also in parties. Universally liked and mainly also done as per the taste and requirements in different variants. It may be dum biryani, chicken biryani, paneer biryani, or any of them. But being a vegetarian, I have never tasted chicken biryani, which is considered to be the favourite of a lot of non-vegetarians and also for the chefs who prepare such amazing dishes. I wish everyone a happy Biryani Day, and I wish I would also be part of the celebration on 7th July to have Biryani in my meals with my friends and family.
