Thrissur: Now, Malayalees can have their favourite biriyani cooked from a machine. The imported machine can make upto 800 plates of biriyani within an hour and 6000 plates per day.
Apart from biriyani, the machine will make a variety of items including beef fry, chicken tikka and chilly chicken.
The biriyani machine is an assembly of three machines made in Japan, India and Germany. It is being used at Al Ma Ida Restaurant at Mala in Thrissur near KSRTC bus stand.
The first part of the machine will make the masala for biriyani after adding the meat and masala mixture into the machine. In the second part, sufficient amount of rice and water will be added to the masala when it is placed on the tray. The third part will cook the rice, meat and masala on the tray within half an hour.
The part of the machine, that washes the rice and adds to the cooking vessel, is made in India. It is the German part that cooks the food.
We can select the type of biriyani from the menu displayed on the monitor attached to the machine. The machine can cook biriyani and fry chicken, mutton and beef at a time without oil.
It can be used to cook ghee rice and Kuzhimanthi also. 500 eggs can be boiled without using water in the machine within 20 minutes.
The machine will automatically get cleaned up once the cooking is over, said the company partners KA Sadiq and P Ali Ashraf.
