Beriani Gam

Happiness is Beriani with Rose Syrup.

Nasi Beriani Gam Johor in Bangi (Putrajaya) is out of the way but it is a treat always. Tucked away in kampung-like surroundings, the famous stall is consistently good but a little expensive for casual lunch. The Kambing Kuzi (lamb) rice is RM 23.

Biryani originated from the Mughal Empire and it remains popular cuisine in many parts of the Indian sub-continent today. The local Johor version derives its name from the gum-like sticky gravy.

The ultra-wide angle lens is not the usual choice for a food shot but I used it here for a reason. Its exaggerated perspective made the bicycle (that was parked too close) appear further. It also allowed a split view of the table and customers walking in.
