Sea Harvest Recipe

Breyani, or Biryani, comes from the Persian word, ‘birian’, which means ‘fried before cooking’. Legend has it that Mumtaz Mahal, the beauty who sleeps in India’s Taj Mahal, created this dish as a ‘complete meal’ to feed India’s armies. Here in South Africa, breyani is a cherished, family meal.
