So, you’re hosting a dinner for your dear ones and want to know how many kg of Biryani you need?

Let me guess, you want to ensure that everyone gets Biryani to fill their appetite, yet it shouldn’t be wasted simultaneously. After all, it’ll cost you!

Don’t worry; I’m here to help you. I’ve cooked Biryani at my home about 200 times on family dinners. It’s why I know very well how much Biryani you might need for dinner.

Let’s get started with our quick but most precise calculations. Believe me, I won’t take a lot of your time.

## Understanding the Biryani Weight

Before distributing the cooked Biryani it’s essential to know how much the Biryani weighs after cooking and why.

Here are the calculations:

The rice weight = 1 kg

Meat: 1.25 to 1.5 kg

Water: 2 litres

Oil or ghee: 200 grams

Other ingredients, including onion, tomatoes etc: 400 grams

So, if you combine all these numbers, your cooked Biryani of 1 kg rice will weigh about 5 kg. Now you must serve this 5 kg Biryani or multiple of it among the eaters.

## 1 kg Rice Biryani for How Many?

Your 1 kg rice, which make 5 kg cooked biryani, will be enough to satiate: 6-12 persons according to appetite.

## How Many Kg Biryani Per Person?

I said earlier that 1 kg of rice Biryani will weigh about 5 kg when cooked as Biryani, so it’ll suffice 6-12 persons.

The calculation is less precise, I understand, because it depends on your guests’ appetite and other side dishes.

Do you remember that I promised that I’d give you the most precise calculations on how many Kg of Biryani you need?

It’s time to see it happening. Without any fuss, the table below clearly elaborates on each and everything.
