Biryani – my landlord loves it

 

For dinner I had some leftover Quorn biryani my Mum made. My soon to be ex-landlord, who is hogging the shared kitchen as always, spots me with the container of our family national dish, and confides in me that biryani is his favourite. He puts prunes in his one. Go figure.

Biryani brawl

 

As any Mauritian family will tell you, biryani is a big thing for us. To prove my point, my Mum gave me enough of the ricey stuff to last two days. To be honest, if my Mum’s biryani went into a triple threat match with the Lakhnavi and Hyderabadi dishes in this GIF, it would make them both quit boxing and hang up their gloves. Mum’s cooking rules!!
