India with its diverse culture, language and history also has a rich culinary tradition. Indian cuisine is one of the most popular cuisines in the world with every region in the country offering its own regional cuisine.
Biryani the ultimate one-pot rice dish which originated from Persia and was brought to India by the Mughal rulers, now has different varieties all across India.
Ambur biryani is a speciality from Ambur in Tamil Nadu, South India. Ambur biryani is a speciality of Nawabs of Arcot who first cooked and made this biryani recipe most popular in South India.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that a restaurant in Dubai offers authentic Ambur biryani. Located in Al Quasis, Ambur Star Biryani serves traditional Ambur biryani.
Last week I ordered lunch delivery from them. Though biryani is their speciality, they also serve starters, soups, curries and Indian Chinese food. Their biryani buckets are worth ordering.
I ordered Gobi 65 as a starter and a vegetarian Mini Bucket. The starter was a bit bland but the mini bucket that consisted of vegetarian Ambur biryani in a mini bucket, raita, aubergine curry and a dessert was awesome.
Ambur biryani is not made from basmati rice but from a special variety of aromatic short grain rice. It is cooked on wood fire. Traditionally Ambur biryani is made with chicken or mutton, but veggie option was also included to satisfy the taste buds of non meat eaters.
My family and I enjoyed their authentic and fragrant biryani. It was flavorful and utterly delicious. The raita and the aubergine curry went well with the biryani. We absolutely loved the scrumptious bread halwa that came along with our mini bucket meal.
Ambur Star Biryani at Al Quasis is a must-try for all biryani lovers. Our food delivery was on time and packaging was excellent. The pricing is pocket friendly. Highly recommend their biryani!
