Abundance is a state of being. It radiates outward. It shines like the sun among the many moons in the world.

Thank you for your post. I've spent some time in Iraq in the last 2 years, and fell in love with Al Biryani while there. So I googled today to find out how to make it myself. Thanks for your post and your wonderful spirit which I have found is what is so wonderful about Iraq.

Apparently it is a Persian word and is one of those dishes that crosses a lot of national boundaries and has a lot of variations in the general region. I have had Indian versions as well.

I am working on a family cookbook that highlights some of the midwestern American dishes that my family cooked and adds in some of the Indian foods that I cooked for my children (after I gravitated to Indian religions). I do think there is an important connection between food and our mothers and grandmothers showing us love. Our first memories are http://www.batteryfast.co.uk of the foods they fed us and when we need comfort we go back to those foods and remember the love behind them.

Biryani is an Indian dish. Although we cook it in Iraq but it is not an authentic Iraqi dish. Okra stew and Dolma, kibbi Mosul, burgher dishes, maskouf are some of the authentic Iraqi dishes.
If you need to learn more about the Iraqi cuisine, please read the Iraqi Family Cookbook: From Mosul to America.
Thanks

I think our strongest bond to memories from our childhood comes through the taste of the foods we eat. When my mother misses her mother, she bakes cookies only her mother would bake. I know one day I will do the same to remember my mother. I am lucky to still have her here. She still loves to cook. Thanks for sharing about Iraqi cuisine and the culture surrounding your Muslim holy day.

You might be right about it being Indian. I had biryani from an Indian restaurant recently. It's even spelled the same (in Roman letters).

Peace ...
