In this style the meat is marinated overnight and then layered with half cooked rice, coriander leaves, mint leaves, fried onions and saffron milk. Traditionally the pot is then sealed with dough and cooked on slow fire for few hours, at home I use a Le Creuset Pot for the same effect. In this technique the flavours of the meat get infused with the rice and the whole dish gets infused with flavours of coriander, mint and saffron. The flavours are so intense that the moment the lid is removed, the whole house gets filled with a delicious biryani aroma.

Hi, I'm Umesh!
My passion for food has come from my mother, she is a great cook and has won many awards for cooking in India. When I was small, around 15 or 16 years of age, I used to type out her recipes on a typewriter so that she could mail them to the magazines for competitions. Once when she was not there, I looked up her recipe book and made chilli chicken and fried rice and I was thrilled at my achievement.
When I found out that my daughter had dairy and egg allergy, I started to bake goods according to her diet. Then baking plant-based motivated me to support other people who suffer from allergies or people who have chosen to alter their diets because of ethical issues. I believe that FoodSt is the right platform to share these meals with everyone who loves to try tasty food. For me, cooking is a kind of meditation that allows me to feel the moment, besides, I enjoy cooking for my family. My cuisine is plant-based. I can describe my style as innovative. I had my grandmother who was a talented cook, has influenced my way of cooking. I grew up with eating a mix of ethnic dishes which helped me to develop my palate in years. I look forward to bringing you some delicious plant based treats.
