Institute of Hotel Management in Hyderabad aims to break records by cooking 75 biryanis – The New Indian Express
HYDERABAD: Hyderabadis have a solid appetite for all kinds of biryanis and the Institute of Hotel Management (IHM) has just proven just how popular the dish is – with a bid to secure a place for biryani in the Limca Book of World Records.
IHM-Hyderabad, as part of its Golden Jubilee celebrations, prepared 75 types of biryanis from across the country on Wednesday. A range of appetizing biryanis – made from fish, seafood, chicken, mutton and vegetables, accompanied by aromatic spices – were prepared by staff and students and displayed.
IHM chose the number ’75’ to mark 75 years of Indian independence. Some of the biryanis served were Ankapur Chicken Biryani, Potlum Biryani, Jaipuri Chicken Biryani, Bharwan Gosht-ki-Biryani, Khargosh-ki-Biryani, Saoji Chicken Biryani, Bhatkal Biryani, Vaankozhi Biryani, Malai Tikka Biryani, Kolkata Biryani and Nizam Subz Biryani.
As part of the event, which ends on April 7, the students will also present a flower arrangement, including 50,000 fresh flowers, placed on a 30-foot-tall bamboo structure. They plan to feature this as the biggest floral arrangement to earn a place in the record books. The institute is open to visitors until April 7 to enjoy the potentially record-breaking biryani fare and floral installation.
