Ok, so not the most photogenic of dishes with the monochromatic colours but the “JK Special Mutton Briyani” was a tasty gem.
It’s cooked using Seeragha Sambha, a type of flavourful rice traditionally reserved for ceremonies like weddings and festivals in Southern India. But what I found particularly impressive was the fact that the many super tender chunks of lamb buried in the deeply fragrant-with-spices rice had none of the strong smell that I am usually sensitive to.
And although it’s presented in a way that makes the portion look small, two or three persons could easily share this. The accompaniments are little bowls of yogurt and curry as well as a hard-boiled egg in a chilli sambal (not shown in my photo as it had arrived slightly late).
