About 20 years ago, I knew a Tamil Sufi named Bawa Muhaiyaddeen. He was tiny, very old, had a bald head, a white beard, and very much reminded me of a spider monkey. And he was a great cook. These are the spices Bawa used for making Biriyani:

Powdered spices:

Grind in a suribachi or with a mortar and pestle:

Seed Spices

See Spider Monkey's Biriyani for a biryani recipe.
