This masala makes the most beautifully aromatic biryani! Whether it's classic Hyderabadi, Malabari prawn, or your secret family recipe, Diaspora Co. has made a masala that acts as your foundation but is made to be played with and built upon. It's a masala that celebrates the regional diversity of biryani and the act of gathering together.
Biryani is a celebration of aromatic, spice-laden rice cooked with hearty, marinated fillings. Every region of South Asia boasts their take on biryani as being the best there is. Without taking sides, we're proud to have created a blend that makes a damn good platter of biryani on its own, or acts as a deeply flavorful base for you to make a specific regional variation with! A perfect balance of spicy, salty, warming, earthy, and umami flavors, our masala is at once decadent and simple, distinct and customizable. (Also delicious in veggie, meat, and grain dishes beyond biryani!)
