Hi friends, welcome back to my blog. Hope you all are doing good. Today I am sharing my review of trying out the Daawat Hyderabadi Biryani kit. 

I had been making traditional Biryani at home all these days and wished to try out a Biryani kit. I checked Amazon and found the Daawat Hyderabadi Biryani kit and ordered it. The package was delivered in just 2 days and so I tried it yesterday. Sharing the link Here incase you wish to purchase.

The Biryani kit comes with

  • 200 gms Basmati rice
  • Whole spices
  • Biryani gravy paste
  • Raita seasoning
  • Recipe card

We only have to add oil, water and Chicken/ Mutton/ veggies to make the BIRYANI.

Hyderabadi Biryani can be made in just 30 minutes if we follow the instruction carefully. I used chicken to make Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani using the Daawat Biryani kit. You can also make Hyderabadi Vegetable Biryani or Hyderabadi Mutton Biryani using veggies or Mutton.

My review of Daawat Hyderabadi Biryani kit

I liked the flavor and taste of the Hyderabadi  Biryani. It is mildly spiced and delicious. My family too loved the Biryani. This kit serves 2 to 3 people and you can try it when you wish to eat something different and tasty. All instructions are given in the recipe card and following the steps is also very easy. This Biryani kit is perfect for Beginners and Bachelors who are not very sure of the proportion and the method to prepare Biryani at home. Overall happy with the purchase 🙂
