However, Pittsburgh offers limited choice when it comes to Hyderabadi Dum Biryani rice dish.

Most Pittsburgh Indian restaurants offer regular Biryani rice dish with the sole exception of Taj Mahal on McKnight Rd which includes dum Biryani on its online menu.

What is Biryani
Biryani is an aromatic, spicy dish usually prepared by cooking Basmati rice along with cloves, cinnamon, dry red chilli, bay leaves, ginger, garlic and other Indian spices.

Biryanis can be vegetarian or meat-based.

Biryani is usually served with gravy, raitha, a cut lime piece and onion slices on the side.

Hyderabadi Dum Biryani is spicier compared to the regular version and is cooked on a slow flame for several hours by covering with a tight lid.
