Bhubaneswar: A Chartered Accountant by profession, Tapas Kumar Sahoo delved into the rich history of biryani and with his knack for balancing balance sheets, has churned out a perfect blend of taste and aroma to satisfy palates of food connoisseurs.
Odisha has unique gastronomic delights to offer the world and as any traditional Odia, a love for lip smacking food is written in Tapas Sahoo’s genetic code. From a young age, he used his passion for cooking to experiment with spices and produce awesome hunger inducing aromas in his dishes. In the year 2014 when he was at Paradeep, he started experimenting with sea foods and created Blue Crab Dum Biryani. Believe me, this biriyani with its potent aroma will bestow ultimate satisfaction on not just your taste buds, but on all your indriyas… And the best part of it is that while indulging yourself, you will realise that the food is not dripping with oily fat or making you uncomfortable, but is one light, delightful journey. Anyone who has tasted his secret recipe says “yeh dil mange more” (the famous punch line of Capt Vikram Batra (P), Param Vir Chakra awardee of the Kargil war).
His family and friends convinced him to seriously consider sharing this delectable biriyani with the rest of the human race… After all, love multiplies when you spread it and this biriyani is such a labour of love, that it would be a sin to keep it away from foodies who like to dive into sinful food delights. With the main motto of making the process of having food convenient and keeping environmental considerations in mind, he selected eco-friendly, sustainable and microwavable packaging for this ready-to-eat meal. To make it even more convenient, it comes with hand sanitizer wipes, wooden spoon and fork, salt and mouth freshener. A spoonful of this will instantly transport you to a heavenly realm of scrumptious flavours without any hiccups and will save you from the drudgery of dish washing after savouring lip smacking food, which incidentally is one of our measures to help conserve water.
To sum it up, he has been able to develop an inimitable tasty bond between traditional exotic ingredients and cooking process of Odia Khichdi with the classical culinary procedure of biryani. Because of this, he wants this unique tasting biryani to be known to the world as Odia Biriyani.
Since Tapas’s Odia Biryani is extremely tasty and delicious only one name could have justified this food venture i.e SCRUMPTIOUS BIRYANI.
