The man was paddling in a big jar

A big pot was placed in front of a restaurant. It was filled with rice. This restaurant served Biryani and this rice was used for it. A man wearing a mustache was standing beside the pot and just cooking. Biryani is a set of rice-based foods made with spices, rice and meat, fish, eggs or vegetables.

The man had a plate in his hand and was paddling with it. The fresh rice in the pot seemed to be hot. The tantalizing aroma was wafting around.

What is Chapati?

Biryani is a mixed rice dish with its origins among the Muslims of India. It can be compared to mixing a curry, later combining it with semi-cooked rice separately. This dish is especially popular throughout the Indian subcontinent, as well as among its diaspora. It is also prepared in other regions such as Iraqi Kurdistan. It is made with Indian spices, rice, meat (chicken, beef, goat, pork, lamb, prawn, or fish), or eggs. The word 'biryani' is derived from a Persian word, birian, which means fried before cooking. It is one of the most popular dishes, which has acquired a niche for itself in South Asian cuisine.
