Victory Without Peace: Biryani Beats Pulao By A Thin Margin
Some rivalries are eternal. For example, India vs Pakistan, Barcelona vs Real Madrid, Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo, PML-N vs PTI, Karachi vs Lahore, Tea vs Coffee and… Biryani vs Pulao.
When it comes to food, there are not many countries that can beat Pakistanis. Seriously, though, Pakistan has all kinds of tastes and foods and that is what makes the country deliciously diverse.
You will find various ways of cooking one particular food in Pakistan. For instance, you will have Saadi Biryani, Sindhi Biryani, Aalu Wali Biryani and one particular place was even selling Pasta Biryani????? WHAT!
There are also different kinds of Pulao e.g. Mattar Pulao, Vegetable Pulao, Channa Pulao, Tawa Pulao, Chicken Pulao, Mutton Pulao etc
The abundance of variety means people have different tastes and opinions, and we tried to end the Biryani vs Pulao debate once and for all. We tried, really.
Out of a little less than 2500 people who voted on our poll on Twitter, 52% voted for Biryani, while the rest of them voted for Pulao. The competition was really tough, but both fought till the final vote.

Whose team are you on in this one?

On Facebook, however, people seemed less interested but Biryani still managed to bag 56% of the 197 votes.
This was when Biryani was losing on the scorecards and then came Zarrar Khuhro to bat, rising up to the occasion and paving way for a hard-fought Biryani win.
Sometimes i feel people are basically good and righteous…and then i see that biryani is barely hanging on with a small margin in @nayadaurpk poll and i say BURN THEM ALL

Some refrained from taking sides because it was really a very, very difficult choice to make.

Biryani or Pulao? NAAN.. of the two.
If you like pulao then have pulao.
If you like biryani then have biryani.
More naan for me!

Ghareeb dry fruits?
Pulao is a royal dish, no doubt. Unlike biryani made of ghareeb dry fruits like imli and alu bukhare https://t.co/MAiwAeFCMu

It was really close, but we had to award a winner and we did so with utmost honesty and transparency. Dhandli Ka To Sawal Hi Nahi.
We tried our best to finish the debate once and for all. But it'll perhaps forever remain a dream. This could've gone anywhere.
A victory without peace for Biryani but a victory nonetheless. Because after all, life is all about fine margins, right?https://t.co/ap4XuHwX0T
