It’s Nearly Eid! Sawans This Way, Folks. (2015).

'Tis the season of Hajj, which to many Muslims is a month of spirituality and sacrifice – and shared food. The classic dish Sri Lankans share is a biriyani sawan, a big plate of rice, meat and more, finished off with watalappam

Nowadays, most of us opt to order in even when it's something as significant as biryani (because it takes a serious amount of time to make, and we're all just too lazy). So we're thankful for places that cater to our carnivorous desires, by whipping up silver platters of intensely flavourful rice, more oft than not accompanied by an equally flavoursome (and intensely sweet) dessert, watalappam.

Here's where to order from when it's time to binge on biryani. Get your friends together, coz these huge plates can feed an average of at least six hungry people.
