The history of biryani is rich and royal just like the dish itself. The reign of the Mughals from the 15th to 19th century left a deep impact on the culinary habits of the subcontinent’s residents. The Mughals treated cooking as an art form. To this day, they are credited for the invention of several dishes that people all around the world, consume heartily. Some people believe that biryani originated in Persia and just like any cuisine, the recipe evolved as it traveled along different cultures around the world. The Turks, Arabs, Persians, and Afghans all added to the succulence of this indulgent dish. Some historians believe that The Great Emperor, Shah Jahan’s wife Mumtaz Mahal, for whom Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal as a token of love, was an accomplished cook, and as the legend has it, she was the one who invented biryani. According to another legend, Timur, the Turco-Mongol conqueror, brought the recipe for biryani down from Kazakhstan via Afghanistan to Northern India.
