Celebrations in Malabar would not be complete with out a Biriyani. Whether it be chicken, mutton, beef or fish Biriyani, preparing one and presenting it to the loved ones is equivalent to saying 'this occasion is special. Enjoy!' It is as much as a synonym to celebrations that people would ask, "When will we get the Biriyani" instead of "When is the wedding due?" or "When will your child come to this world?"
Spicy condiments are a part of malabar cooking... and there would not be another dish as uniquely delicious as this breath taking blend of spices and condiments. This must be why, no special occasion of joy nor a party where two souls join for life is left without at least one item as the Biriyani in Malabar. When your stomach is content, so would your mind be ... "Elementary ! my dear Watson" :)
