Ek Briyani




One day, I think about a decade ago, I went to meet one of my Uncle from my hometown. It was his first visit to the city of Bangalore. It was already long past lunch time, but my uncle didn’t have his lunch yet. So we went to a nearby restaurant.

"I won’t have dosa right now, will I get rice here?" said the uncle.

Being from a Riceoholic's land, I understood his feeling very well and replied, "you should try Chicken Briyani here, it’s really delicious"

As uncle was new to this part of the world he wasn’t quite acquainted to the great Briyani culture out here. But without any hesitation he was ready for the adventure.

"Ek, Briyani dena," he asked the waiter.

Within minutes the guy returned with an aromatic bowl of Briyani. My uncle was confused to see a boiled egg piece at the top of the bowl, covered with Briyani rice.

"Oh shit, I asked for 'Ek Briyani' and the waiter had given 'Egg Briyani'," complained my uncle.

"Bhai saab, maine to 'Ek Briyani' bola tha, aapne to 'Egg Briyani' le aaya. Actually I want chicken briyani," the uncle pleaded with the waiter guy.

The waiter replied with a smile, "Sir, ye chicken briyani hi hai, egg is free."

My uncle was so happy and his face brightened to a smile.
