Eid Cooking Competition

Biriyani (Without Rice Grains)

Traditionally, “Biriyani” is and has been the main comfort dish for special events in India, especially Eid for centuries.
In alignment with that, the theme of 2019 KAGW Kaipunyam Eid Cooking Competition is Biriyani.
However, there will be a creative twist:
Participants must make this delicious dish without rice grains. They can substitute anything over rice grains, such as rice noodles, poha (aval). It is not limited to the usage of any form of carb -- processed or other grains, which can also be rice substitutes.
But ultimately it still maintains the authentic taste of what qualifies as a biriyani!
