Biryani Hut opens its doors to all for India’s tour of West Indies
Biryanis hut has been serving the nation for over half a century.
Its opened on the first day of the tour of the West Indies and has since become a staple in the village’s community.
Biryani has been known as ‘the Indian food of India’ since the early days of the country and has helped to provide a respite for many a day at home and on the road.
“It is a very important day for us because the West Indian tour is being hosted by the Indian team and the village will be a part of it,” said Dhammika Das, a member of the village who runs the hut.
The Biryanees were initially welcomed by locals but were quickly put off by the noise of traffic.
They have been a regular fixture in the town for years and have even held a parade for the community every year.
A big part of the community, however, has been following the team on social media.
The team are doing an outstanding job with the community and they are all very proud of them,” said Bishwaj Pandey, a village elder who runs a small restaurant in the hut, adding that he was thrilled to see them back on the field.
The team are also expected to visit the nearby village of Moti Bagh, which was home to Biryaniais before it was taken over by the British in 1855.
It has been the place where Biryanes members have been gathered for a meal.”
When we visited the village in August, there were about 50 members of the Biryans.
Now we have about 60.
We were very happy to see the Biyas here,” said Pandey.
As the tour draws near, the Bijayaas are hoping that the visitors will also visit the village, which has been a focal point for many Indian teams during the tour.
Visiting the village to meet Biryaans is a way to celebrate their independence, as the village has been an important part of India for centuries.
