May is the month of Eid and with Eid comes plenty of food celebrations amongst Muslims from every cultural background. In the UK, one of the most popular Eid dishes is easily a classic biryani, which brings together meat and rice in a highly flavourful, heavily spiced dish. While chicken is typical, it’s not uncommon to see a whole spectrum of meats used for the Eid biryani, from mutton and lamb to goat, although fish is a lesser spotted protein of choice. Served with raita (cucumber, mint, and yoghurt dip), salad and pickles on the side, it’s easy to see why this is a year-round favourite in the UK too.
