"...less frequently, chicken"?[edit]

In my experience, chicken is more common than beef nowadays. Nath 04:36, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

In my experience, the opposite seems to hold true. Perhaps we could just remove the "less frequently" qualifier? 11:39, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
This was stated reference to authenticity and preference of people in Hyderabad.Wiki Raj 04:12, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
Would agree with this. Chicken is far more common since it is not only more acceptable in India than beef, but also cheaper to consume and more popularly preferred for its distinctively different flavor. You could remove the less frequently, but it would be better to put chicken first and other meats second. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:55, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Preferred Meat[edit]

The current article is inconsistent. The preamble states that goat is the default meat, and chicken is a substitute. The "Ingredients" section states that mutton is the default and that both goat and chicken are alternatives. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tijm6140 (talkcontribs) 23:14, 2 August 2014 (UTC)


The recipe is gone, while the introduction to the recipe still is in the article. 19:07, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Name of the article should be "Hyderabadi Biryani". What say? @Vin09 and Rizwanmahai: --Human3015Send WikiLove  08:23, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Requested move 23 August 2015[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved to Hyderabadi biryani. Clear consensus this is the common spelling and "biryani" should be decapitalised per Wikipedia's MoS. Mergers are generally outside the scope of RM, if anyone wants to follow up on that they should probably start a new discussion. Jenks24 (talk) 15:42, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Hyderabadi biriyaniHyderabadi BiryaniWP:COMMONNAME. Main article on this type of recipe is also named Biryani, article itself uses term "Biryani" everytime and not "Biriyani". Human3015Send WikiLove  15:37, 23 August 2015 (UTC) Note to closer Please read the discussion carefully as there was a great deal of confusion about where the article was going to end up (i.e. most people seem to have misunderstood it as being a move to the non-capitalised form biryani from biriyani rather than to Biryani). Ogress smash! 02:28, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Support as per Biryani page spelling, but no idea on whether it be caps for B.--Vin09 (talk) 16:57, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Merge and redirect to biryani instead. Almost a complete overlap of content. Abecedare (talk) 17:03, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Merge and redirect to biryani. Also, since we aren't speaking German, why would we capitalise biryani? Ogress smash! 17:37, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Support renamecomment whilst adequate redirects are in place, within the various articles, spellings are inconsistent, this reflects the 'real world', but looks tacky. Biriani, etc. are other variants.Pincrete (talk) 17:42, 23 August 2015 (UTC) … … nb biryani, lower case.Pincrete (talk) 16:34, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment: I don't know why some users asking for "merge". There are already articles on many other Biryanis mentioned in this article. It seems that there is no objection for the move except "B" should be in lowercase. So we can move article to Hyderabadi biryani and can start new discussion for "merge". Hyderabadi biryani gets more than million results on google search [1]. Hyderabadi biryani is also likely to get Geographical Indication (GI) tag [2]. This Biryani has special identity and deserves separate article on it. --Human3015Send WikiLove  19:01, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
the article had 3500 hits last month
I am recommending a merge because almost all of the content in the article is applicable to biryani, and is not particular to Hyderabadi biryani. In the whole article there is only one sentence that falls in the latter category ("Hyderabadi biryani originated after blending of Mughlai and Iranian cuisine in the kitchens of the Nizam, rulers of the historic Hyderabad State.").
I haven't looked at other biryani articles, and if they are similar largely duplicative content forks, they should be merged back to the biryani article too. Abecedare (talk) 17:06, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
The ingredients and cooking methods are 'variations on a theme', but distinct. I agree that all the articles are a bit 'over explanatory' or stating the obvious (on main page chicken biryani is made with chicken, beef biryani is made with beef etc). Pincrete (talk) 21:23, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
I, and I think others, are assuming that the non-B option is now the proposal (ie simply respelling biryani consistent with related pages).Pincrete (talk) 16:32, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
I did actually assume the Uppercase B was part of it but if it's not then I just support the correct spelling. –Davey2010Talk 17:42, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
I support biryani and mentioned the page name. Srinu (Talk | contrib) 19:09, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
