Well, i love Biryani (a North Indian dish in which rice is cooked with goat or other meats and spices). I have had a lot of Biryani and at many places. I have had biryani at home (where it is the best - my friends also swear that the mutton birynia my MOM makes, ROCKS big time), in restaurants, on the streets of Delhi, at Jama Masjid and in big weddings. I have eaten in small plates, from a big cooking dish and even a BIGGER dish in which food for 200 people can be made. I thought i had eaten a lot of Biryani and in many ways - but, as life always is, i was so wrong. Have you ever eaten Biryani like this??

Biryani

I mean this is SERIOUS!!!!!!!! eating. I believe this as big as the tent and can easily feed a 1000 people. I am sure that outside the tent they screen out kids who could actually drown in this sea of rice and (looks like) camel meat. How did they even cook this? And how do they lay it out? I must say, hats off to the saudis, bahrainians (i now know why michael jackson lives there) and other middle eastern BIRYANI EATERS, you GUYS rock!!!

AMAZING PICS!!! I'm wondering about the same thing...exactly how and in what do they cook all that biryani?!? Do they cook it in one gigantic vessel or in instalments? Great blog Sharib...keep posting more such interesting stuff.

This is absolutely stunning! My gosh..how did they manage to cook and display it. I have lived in Saudi for 10 yrs during my childhood but have never ever encountered anything like this. Though yes...I have been to parties where biryani was served in a huge plate and people would sit around it and savour the biryani together.

I am speechless. One helluva biryani. If there was category for largest biryani dish in Guiness Books, this will beat 'em all. Too bad there isn't enough people to eat it. How on earth did you get this picture?

This is not Biryani but meat rice dish cooked by most Gulf Arabs. Many Muslim communities have the tradition of eating out of common plates. This a tradition from the prophet of Islam to bring the rich, poor and to remove all kind of divisions between people. Many other communities have this tradition like Afghans, Sindhi muslims. Even other arabs practice this from time to time. Often in large religious gatherings in India and Pakistan too communal eating is seen. Snigdha most of these gatherings by arabs are quite private between their friends and tribes mostly in marriages and other occasions. Often these are in areas outside cites where tents are put up and people gather together for food and bonding. It is very unusual for others (read foreigners to be invited ).

There is nothing great about this. It's silly and stupid. Total waste of food... There is no way this bunch can finish all that food... I wonder what happens to the rice that's in the middle part of that 'pool'. How can they reach that middle bit ? Are they going to walk into the pool later ???!!

Biryani, is not a North Indian dish (every state in India has their own form of Biryani) probably you have not eaten Donne biryani of Karnataka and the Kerala Biryani. ...as far as i know best biryani is found south in Hyderabad.
