Kaushik and Vishal help India rediscover real food heritage!

Once a dish for royalty, today Biryani enjoys the status of being the most loved dish in India. Over the years, this local favourite has undergone numerous modifications and lost its heritage. Biryani By Kilo has reintroduced authenticity to the dish by using traditional recipes and fresh ingredients for every order they receive. Each order receives special care as it is prepared individually in an earthen pot to preserve the authenticity of the flavours. The brand uses earthen pots handcrafted at Kumhaara Gram, providing sustainable employment to several artisans and craftsmen of India.

The founders have inculcated the spirit of innovation into the brand by using state-of-the-art technology and processes to deliver a royal feast in every Indian home.
