It is widely believed that biryani is a derivative of the Persian word Biryan, which means “fried before cooking”, and the dish travelled to the erstwhile India (from Persia) during the Mughal era. Amongst other proponents of this view, Lizzie Collingham held that the modern version of biryani was prepared, for the first time, in the royal kitchens of the Mughals, somewhere between 1526 and 1857, the period they ruled over fragments of the Indian subcontinent.

Another view regarding the origin of this satiating dish is founded on a popular legend, which suggests that when Mumtaz Mahal, wife of the Mughal king Shah Jahan, observed occurrence of debility in Mughal soldiers, due to long bouts of uninterrupted battles on a variety of fronts, she ordered the chefs to prepare a tasty, yet healthy dish, with rice and meat. In order to enhance its taste, later on the royal chefs added saffron and spices into the dish.
