Sometimes, somewhere unexpected, you will eat a dish that will change your life. For me, in a corner of Burma, it happened this evening. An unassuming mutton shank biryani was the culprit. Out it came, tucked under a thin, loving blanket of nann bread, which sealed in the steam as rice, lamb shank and gentle spices fused together in a marriage of flavour, texture and tradition. Every mouthful was a memory, a poem and a love story to food and the country it is served in. I now fully intend to find the chef and ask him to marry me, just so I can be guaranteed to eat the dish on my wedding day. If that fails, I will ask him to make me a bed where basmati rice is my mattress, lamb shank is my bed fellow and nann my duvet- that way I can live my dream of Mutton Shank Biryani every night.
