Trying Out The Delicious Dum Briyani From Shami Banana Leaf Delights In Singapore


Rita Razali •  Aug 17, 2021

While there are plenty of spots serving halal briyani in Singapore, finding the one that suits your taste buds might be a challenge. Little India or Tekka Market might be your go-to spot for yummy briyani but our Tribes by HHWT member Rita Razali shares a spot in the north selling mouthwatering briyani too.

Trying out Dum Chicken Briyani at Shami Banana Leaf Rice Delights

Shami Banana Leaf Delights have been around for some time and everyone knows how delicious their briyani is. No need for introduction... but when they told that they have Dum Chicken Briyani, only a fool would say no. Hahaha.. Since dining in wasn't allowed a few weeks ago, that did not stop me from getting 2 packets to enjoy with the family.

This is not your usual Dum Briyani..as it tastes like old fashioned Chicken Dum Briyani I used to get at the old Tekka market. Brought back sweet memories.

We got to choose vegetables to eat with our Dum Briyani. We had potatoes and lady's fingers. It was delicious.

Can't help it...but I just had to order their Mutton with bones masala. It just added more Ummph!! to the briyani. Hehe

The meal will not be complete without kulfi!! It was packed into a cute little claypot (it is really a claypot). The traditional frozen pistachio kulfi is the best way to end your meal. Yummmmsss!!! Need I say more?
