Try biryani

If you have ever been in the UAE, no doubt, you know this dish. But if it is your first time and your gastronomic adventure just begins, be sure to try the traditional Arab dish called biryani. This meal is so popular in the United Arab Emirates, that there are even specialized biryani restaurants. Try and enjoy!

Basis biryani consists of rice and meat, mostly tender chicken and juicy lamb. But there are variations with different types of fish and vegetables. An integral component of the recipe is a significant number of spices which are fried first, then laid with the meat, cut into small strips, followed Basmati rice varieties. Sometimes, it is spiced with cloves, raisins and pistachios.

It is worth noting that cooking for the Arabs is a perfect-setting ritual. Therefore, they always use fresh meat and the best spices for preparing both high-cuisine delights and ordinary dishes.
