Biryani is a flavorful and aromatic rice dish that originated from the Indian subcontinent. It is made with Indian spices, rice, meat (chicken, beef, goat, pork, fish), or eggs and vegetables. Depending on the region and personal preference, Biryani can be spicy or mild and the ingredients can vary. It's often garnished with raisins, boiled eggs, and fried onions. Biryani is a one-pot dish cooked on the stove or in the oven.
