By QL Videos

The one dish that almost everyone loves indulging in is mouth-watering biryani. So foodies, know that you can tantalise your taste buds as the Biryani Festival is back with its second edition!

Shaun (The Burg), of our worthy Qatar Living team, headed over to get some firsthand foodie feedback for this episode of We Are Qatar, and gauge just how happy the fest is making its visitors.

The most flavorful festival is taking place until March 2, 4:00 pm to 12:00 am, at Al Bidda Park.

Visitors can taste and appreciate more than 100 types of distinct Biryanis. Some of the well-known favourites will be present including, but not limited to, mughlai, lucknow gosht, kashmiri vegetable, mussels, prawns, hara macchi, egg, harkmas (beef), malabar chicken, mattanjery chicken, kayikka’s beef, thalassery mutton, the traditional Afghani and Irani.

Do keep some cold drinks handy as those seeking a more spicy experience may find their palates on fire.

The word Biryani is derived from the Persian word ‘Birian’, which means ‘fried before cooking’ and Birinj, the Persian word for rice. There are various theories related to the origin of this scrumptious dish. Many historians believe that biryani originated from Persia and was brought to India by the Mughals. Biryani was further developed in the Mughal royal kitchen.

So if you are a die-hard fan of this delicious dish, head to Biryani Festival!
