Biryani Maxx Indian Cuisine Cary, NC
Biryani is believed to have been brought to India by Taimur Lang, or Timur, the lame. The classic biryani originated in the mughal courts after they refined the dish with cooking influences from the Persian courts. The Mughal emperor Aurangzeb (1618 – 1707) brought the dish to Hyderabad when he invaded the South and installed his representatives as governors of the southern provinces. One of these governors later became the Nizams of Hyderabad.
In Hyderabad’s 400 year history the Hyderabadi cuisine has, like its culture, stood high and unmatched by any other state in India. In fact Hyderabad was known for the spectacular way its aristocracy entertained.
