The Biryani’s of India.
The name is derived from the Persian word beryā(n) (بریان), meaning “fried, roasted”. The dish originates somewhere around present day Turkey / Iran.
It came to India with Islamic traders from the region and was adopted by the Mughals here and made famous. It is now very popular across the Indian subcontinent from Kashmir to Kanyakumari from Sindh (Pak) to Burma. In fact it is the national dish of Pakistan and served in their airlines.
There are also many other famous varieties of Biryani in India like Kacchi, Tehari, Dhal, Fish, Chicken, Dindugal, Thalserry, Sindhi, Vaniambadi, Thalapakatti, Bhatkali, Rawther, Karachi, Kalyani etc

Today we welcomed The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to the Tower of London where they visited the evolving installation of ceramic poppies in the moat which commemorates 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War.
Each member of the Royal Party planted their own poppy in remembrance and met with representatives from the six military service charities which will benefit from the proceeds raised by the selling of the poppies.
You too can be a part of the Tower of London’s major centenary commemoration for the First World War by buying a poppy, dedicating a poppy or volunteering to plant poppies. Find out more here.
