FAQ on Biriyani:
1. Why is your blog called Biriyani?
Biriyani is one of the many things that is related to an Indian Muslim. I have come across n number of requests from my friends to treat them with a Biriyani and I am called a ‘Biriyani’ for this reason. It is just one of the many identities that I have.
2. You are a Muslim and how come you don’t speak Hindi/Urdu?
Muslims in general have nothing to do with the two languages except that it is being spoken by a huge number of people belonging to India. Islam came to India through the traders from Arab countries even before the Mughals. So as far as Hindi is concerned, I am ‘ek gaav mein ek kissaan raghu thaatha’ wonli.
Islam is not restricted to any particular country/region/language. Among the blessings of the Almighty is that we have Muslims belonging to almost every nation, every race, every language and I speak Tamil, being one of them.
3. Why do you wear Burkha/Bardha/Purdha/bedsheet/cloak, that too in a city where there are only two types of weather-Summer, Super Summer?
I wear it because my Lord has ordered me and all the women to do it, to save myself from the lustful looks and stares of some men. I prove that it is only what is in my heads that matters and not what is outside!
4. When will you post the recipe of Biriyani here?
Insha Allah, I will make a Mutton Biriyani all by myself one day, treat my friends and relatives with it and post the recipe later.
5. What is mokkai?
Mokkai can be anything. I will leave it to you to find the most creative use of it.

7. What is the most prominent thing that one can find in your brain?
A mosquito coil. You will find a lot of posts starting with ‘during my —- days’ (the —- can be filled with childhood/school/college/Trichy).
If you have anymore questions, just let me know. Thanks! 🙂
