However, the biryani of Hyderabad, Kashmir and Lucknow tend to be more popular.

Hyderabadi Biryani is more of a Mughlai originated dish that is prepared with a lot of spices, mutton pieces, yoghurt, rice and saffron to give it a special taste.

The city of Nawabs, Lucknow is home to some of the finest recipes of biryani. The biryani here is cooked differently, with the meat and rice cooked together at a slow flame to make it more tender and aromatic in flavor.
