The journey of a timeless recipe through cities and time
Calcutta or Kolkata biryani is said to have been brought to Kolkata by Wajid Ali Shah, the last Nawab of Awadh. And the history of this spectacular dish lies not just in the potato!
The royal chefs in Kolkata wanted to please the exiled Nawab of Lucknow with his favourite Awadhi Biryani. But the city was now new, and the spices and ingredients were also different. So what did they do?
They decided to make a biryani that was subtle, refined, and elegant, much like the revered Lucknow biryani, but carried with it the sweetness and allure of Calcutta. With potatoes, a few new spices, and tweaked ingredients, they led to the creation of a recipe that was now the perfect celebration of both cities. History says that’s how the Classic Kolkata Biryani was born.
Centuries later, India Gate Classic Kolkata Biryani Masala reawakens the exquisite taste with aromatic spices, slowly simmered using traditional recipes, promising an authentic and indulgent Kolkata Biryani experience.
