Kolkata is a pilgrimage for biryani lovers. If you call yourself a biryani lover, Kolkata's special biryani is simply must try. Biryani recipes can be described simply as rice and meat cooked in layers of spices. Biryani as a form of food came to Kolkata with the nawab of Lucknow, Wajid Ali Shah, who was exiled in Bengal. So it is fair to say that the Kolkata biryani developed from the Lucknowi biryani recipe.
