A few months ago DomDom was all over my social media feed and I love Calcutta biryani so the order was inevitable. A friend’s bad day at work made for the perfect binge justification.
I wasn’t all that tempted by their gimmicky Bacon Biryani offering. I love bacon but I love biryani enough not to need to tart it up with pork fat. The Mutton Biryani was pretty good but I was a little disappointed by the meat to rice ratio. I also thought the rice could have been more generously spiced.
The Phirni was unappetizingly congealed and not really worth ordering at all. Their Burrani, on the other hand, is fantastic. If they would deliver it by the litre I would spend my entire summer drinking just this.
