Bay Area's Best Indian Food

Growing tired of sub-par Indian restaurants, The Snobby Foodie searched long and hard to find the Bay Area's Best Biryani. Her search took her to places so sketchy that she was sometimes afraid to leave her car. One time, she was served an overpriced plate of biryani, and she had to send it back because it was mushy and gross.

Explaining South Indian Food

Sometimes I have mad cravings for South Indian food. Unfortunately, not a lot of my friends know what it is and are reluctant to join me. When I try to explain it - it just sounds not very appetizing. Seriously- try playing Catchphrase with the name of South Indian dishes. It's so hard. But it's SO good.

What is Biryani?
It's a curry infused rice dish. Think of fruit infused water, but better- and spicier.

The Short Story

  1. Saute some vegetables.
  2. Add biryani seasoning and cook and ingredients until they are a curry.

The Best Bay Area Chicken Biryani

Biryani is an art, but really it's a rice dish made with meat, spices, and vegetables. This dish takes a lot of skill to make. It's like the Indian version of Spanish paella. (ish). Every South Asian kid will claim that their mom's biryani is the best Unfortunately, when you go off to college, there ain't no momma's biryani. This list is for those poor South Asian kids.
