Kolkata Chicken Biryani | মুঘলাই চিকেন বিরিয়ানি
Kolkata Mughlai cuisine is heavily influenced by Awadh, Uttar Pradesh. When nawab of Awadh was sent to Kolkata in the period of British Raj he had brought his own cooks and servers along with his own crew. And Biryani, Chaap and various kebabs were regularly cooked preparations for his highness in their newly setup special kitchen. But with the controlled cash flow (from British Governor) it became quite a challenge for the royal chefs to maintain unlimited supply of biryani-chaap for happiness of nawab.
So they had introduced boiled and well seasoned potato and hard boiled eggs in biryani along with reduced amount of meat. And gradually meetha attar, kewra water also added in the rice to increase the glamor quotient. Thus biryani looked full and sufficient and royal which has turned into famous Kolkata Chicken Biryani with time.
Kolkata Mutton Biryani is another recipe which is influenced by the Awadhs. The story goes that the last Nawab of Awadh's, Wajid Ali Shah was exiled on Kolkata by the British. When he came to Kolkata, with him he brought his personal chef and Kolkata was introduced to a new Awadhi style cuisine. The Biryani cooked by the chef became popular but the locals could not afford meat so cooked the biryani with potato and egg intsead. Today meat is served along with egg and potato in Kolkata Mutton Biryani.
