    More Than Just Biryani is a coming-of-age story of three women and their culinary journey.

    Summary of the Book

    More Than Just Biryani is the story of three women spanning three generations – Ruqayya, Tahera and Zubi. Sonia Kapoor id a journalist who is working in a Hong Kong based food magazine. She befriends Zubi, a coy Indian woman, who has been living in Hong Kong with her husband and child. Sonia wants to get to know Zubi well and extract all the fascinating stories about Zubi’s connection with food. Zubi eventually opens up to Sonia, takes her to Bangalore, and introduces her to her mother's simply cooked home food. Sonia soon realizes that there is much more to Muslim food than just their love for biryani. More than Just Biryani shows how food plays a substantial role in shaping the character and lives of each of these women. The author also includes quite a few recipes for some sumptuous Muslim dishes such as kaali mirch ki phaal and lauz. This book is a must-read for those interested in books about food and culture.

    More than just a book.

    MTJB has been extremely difficult for me to complete. It's an intertwined tale of three women, spanning three generations. We humans, fear expressing and fear love, but we so desperately look for it, we need it and want it. I am a voracious reader by nature, and I don't take very long to finish books. But this, has taken me a while because of the emotions it put me through as a reader. I was a transformed woman by the end. Readers journey through each story, each character evolving with it. W...

    More than just Biryani – Andaleeb Wajid

    Three women, three different journeys, three connected lives in three different places tied by a single thread of Muslim cuisine. This is the gist of the heart-warming story painted by Andaleeb Wajid in “More Than Just Biryani”.

    Life in a muslim household may not be familiar to most of us. As Andaleeb observes, non-muslims tend to think of the primary cuisine of muslims as biryani. In this foodoir (a memoir based on food), she has set out to correct that opinion by showing that Muslim cuisin...
