Although the exact origin of Biryani is still under dispute, there is sound logic behind the following

A version of the modern-day biryani is born in the royal kitchens of the Mughal Empire. Mughlai Biryani, famous for its rich spice-marinated meat and flavorful rice, is fit for a king.

Banished by the British, Nawab Wajid Ali Shah tries to recreate his beloved dish in the city of Calcutta.

The golden aloo, subtle flavors, scented rice, and tender meat creates a dish that spells 'comfort'.
