What do you do when life gives you egg and rice? For me, I either make Biryani, Rice and Egg Curry, Fried Rice or Pulao.

So this weekend when I had some boiled eggs and cooked rice I turned these two delicious ingredients into this famous, filler and popular meal, known as Hyderabadi Egg Biryani| Restaurant Style Egg Dum Biryani.

Biryani:

Biryani is widely preferred rice dish all across India. And Hyderabadi/Deccani Cuisine is the best where it comes to Biryani and Egg-based dishes. Hyderabad is famous for Biryani — a heaven for biryani lovers. They have so many varieties of Biryanis.

Today’s recipe known as Hyderabadi Egg Biryani is one the most favoured amongst all of Biryanis. Today I am sharing traditional ‘Egg Dum Biryani’ in Hyderabadi style.

What exactly is Hyderabadi Egg Biryani?

Hyderabadi Egg Biryani is an authentic egg dum biryani where you get wonderfully fragrant and so fluffy long grain rice with aromatic and spicy onion tomato masala, and boiled and sautéed eggs. This flavourful biryani can also be made in a pressure cooker or in an Instant Pot.

How did I get this secret authentic recipe?

I learnt this recipe from one of my husband’s friends. When my dear husband came to Europe, he made some friends. Some of his friends were from ‘Hyderabad’, the capital of the Indian state of Telangana. And they used to make famous egg dishes during the weekends. Such as Hyderabadi Egg Drop Curry, Egg Fried Rice, Egg Masala, Egg Biryani, Egg Sandwich, Egg Paratha and many more.

What’s the best time to cook Egg Dum Biryani?

The answer is the weekends. Biryani is pieces of art. It’s a love affair, which needs time and patience. No HURRY. Since Biryani requires time and patience both, most people usually cook it on Sunday evenings for their get-togethers to enjoy the luxurious meal with their family and friends.

My husband tells me, that the boys always made some extra biryani to enjoy the leftovers for the next days lunch.

Ever since we got married, my husband used to talk a lot about the Egg Biryani his friends used to cook. And every time I asked about the recipe, he said: “I don’t know. You know I am not much into cooking, so I have never cooked it myself, I have only devoured it. But I am sure of one thing, that it is a time taking recipe.”

So on a fine day, I asked to one of his friends about the Egg Biryani recipe when he visited us. And he was so genuine that he invited us to the dinner next weekend and made this Egg Biryani just to give me the recipe. And I must say it was one of the most delicious Biryanis I have ever tasted.

The taste was so intense. The rice felt like they fully absorbed all the spices and masala so well. That taste was something which is really hard to describe in the words. I am seriously not making it up, it was so damn delicious. And after that day whenever I cook Egg Biryani, I always follow that recipe.
