Biryani Pot is a popular little Indian restaurant opposite Saga World on Jumeirah Road. It has two delivery kitchens, one in DSO and the other, which we ordered from, in Motor City. Famous for serving its biryanis in clay pots covered with a dough “lid” (which turns to bread as the dish cooks) in traditional dum pukht style, it also boasts a selection of tandoor grills, wraps and curries. We ordered a mixed grill, a chicken biryani and a rather expensive AED7.62 naan bread.
Cut open the dum lid and one is treated to an amazing aroma and an even more beautiful sight, rice the multi-colours of autumn leaves. Sceptics will argue that’s only because they use food colouring, which very well may be but it’s pretty, nonetheless. Tikka looking pieces of boneless chicken, tucked under the rice, were juicy thanks to the high moisture content of the dish. This was a good biryani. The mixed grill was equally impressive to look at but was let down by a dry and flaky sheesh kebab. The tandoori and malai chicken, however, were very good.
All in all, my uncle and I were happy with our meal. Worth an order.
