Notably, the petition was filed last week. So far, it has garnered more than 1,550 signatures. In fact, a march was organised in Delhi to address this issue. A lot of protestors carried placards stating their love for the dish.
History of Biryani
Biryani is derived from Farsi word Birian. There are so many theories that how it made its way to India. Based on the name, and it’s cooking style (Dum), a lot of people conclude that it originated from Arabia or Persia. It is a brilliantly balanced amalgamation of spices and flavours. Without any doubt, it sparks the craving in everyone. An experience of Indian cuisine is incomplete without Biryani. According to one of the theories, Biryani was brought by Turk Mongol Conqueror, Timur when he had arrived at the frontiers of Indian in 1398. It is believed that the diet of his warriors was earthen pot rice and spices and whatever meats that were available. It was then buried in a hot pit, before serving it to warriors.
