Sometimes, I catch myself looking out my window and wondering when I'll be able to enjoy Royal Indian Curry House's biryani again. ICYDK biryani is a popular rice dish in Persian and South Asian cultures (its origin is up for debate). They key ingredient is rice, but biryani usually has some type of meat—beef, chicken, mutton, fish, prawns, to name a few—as well as spices and aromatics.
They all work together to create this beautiful, deep, layered dish. Caramelized onions, nuts, and dried fruits are sometimes used as garnish. So if you're just as hungry as I am after reading that, here's where you can order mouthwatering biryani in Manila.
