Many researchers believe that the dish originated in India, however, it goes way back to Central Asia. On the other side, the speculation about the veg biryani recipe originates in Persia but migrated to India via Mughal. Well, it is definite that Mughals’ cuisine is mouth-watering and completely amazing, they gradually shaped the Indian heritage by incorporating veg dum biryani recipe. 

Usage of Spices
