While travelling to Iran and especially Isfahan, it is highly suggested to taste its famous dish i.e. Beryan, almost all the tourists who visit Isfahan will taste this unique and nourishing food.
Although most of the Iranian call it “Beryani”, its correct name is Beryan and only the noble people of the Isfahan know it, the word “Beryani” is in fact the place wherein Beryan is cooked and sold. The Beryani store is a separate place which exclusively sells Beryan. The importance of Beryan among Isfahani people can be seen in the facts that it is a dish which is only cooked in Isfahan and in a separate place and usually it is not cooked along with other foods.
Beryan is mixture of lamb meat, white liver, kidney, onion and seasonings, the obtained paste is put in a non-stick container and then in the oven. While preparing it to be served, its own appetizer i.e. Beryan broth is added to it along with cinnamon and black pepper. Also, some curd and chopped bread are added to the broth of cooked meat and is served. As Beryan is a fatty and heavy food which needs long time to be digested, it is mostly served in lunch.
