Biryani Chicken @ Majid's Persian Kabab!

Majid's Persian Kabab is located at Rizal Street Davao city. My first time to try Majid's kabab was a month ago when my boyfriend Coicoi wants me to try the best kabab in town. We ordered beef and chiken kabab. They really taste good with the hot and spicy sauce. The kababs are cooked on a metal skewer and then served with a grilled tomato and a pita bread. The kababs are very affordable ranging from 25 php to 30 php.

Yesterday, I want to go back there for dinner to try their Biryani rice. So, after hanging around with friends, my boyfriend and I went to Majid's persian Kabab. We ordered Biryani Chicken. While enjoying our dinner I was wondering what ingredients were used. I wanted to have a recipe of it and try to cook it at home. When we got home, i searched through the net where Biryani rice originated and what ingredients are needed for cooking. I found out thet Biryani is derived from the Persian word beryā(n) which means "fried" or "roasted". There are many kinds of biryanis and each kind has a uniqueness about it. Pre-mixed biryani spices from different commercial names are easily available in markets these days, which reduces the preparation time though the taste differs considerably.

The spices and condiments used in biryani are what primarily contribute to the taste, these are generally cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, wasabi, bay leaves, coriander and mint leaves, apart from ghee, ginger, onions, garlic and yoghurt. The premium varieties include saffron. For a non-vegetarian biryani, the main ingredient that accompanies the spices is the meat—beef, chicken, goat, lamb, or shrimp, though vegetable biryani varieties are also popular. The dish is served with dahi chutney or Raita, korma, curry or a sour dish of eggplant (brinjal).

So, If you'll visit Davao City, don't miss Majid's Persian Kabab. One of Davao's Best Persian Kabab Dishes!
