Buriyani Powder


Buriyani is a Malay dish and not so traditional in Jaffna, however some families enjoy this dish at certain festivity times. Buriyani powder also involves dry roasting of main spices and grinding them to a powder. Due to the spices losing their potency, it is advised to store this powder for a couple of weeks. However, there are many varieties of Buriyani powder and pastes available in the market. You can experiment with different ones and stick to which ever you like.
