Happy Eid al-Adha – Biryani Patents

Hello fellow foodies! What a day it is, Eid Mubarak to all our readers!

Eid is known as the festival of sacrifice that marks  the end of Haj, and the cuisine is a very important part of the celebrations. Biryani, sevyian, sheer khurma and other delectable dishes make Eid a very special day for food connoisseurs. So, on this day we bring to you a couple of patents claiming inventive, healthy preparations, from China and USA.

  • US 09/365,217

Method of cooking and flavouring meat


Within the present invention, a powder or “fines” is created from the targeted wood (i.e. mesquite, peach, hickory, apple). This powder is then sprinkled onto, or rubbed into, the meat (fish, chicken, beet, ostrich, buffalo, etc.) and then the meat is flame grilled. During the flame grilling, the wood powder is incinerated, thereby releasing the wood’s flavor into the meat through the smoke.

As you can see, these patents claim dishes that not only follow the standards, but are also in line with today’s dietary needs. Nevertheless, Eid isn’t the day to go on a diet! It’s a day to rejoice and gorge on some of the most heavenly tasting dishes. Several preparations like Hyderabadi Biryani, Hyderabadi Haleem, etc., have been subject of GI protection in India. It is the perfect day to try the specially spiced, traditional food preparations, and have fun. So go on, treat yourselves.

Happy Eid once again!
