A Traditional Slow-Cooked Nasi Briyani


Geylang uses yellow (rice) colour If you use another colour, it’s not briyani anymore If you use blue, there’s one in Kelantan Would you want to eat it? Green rice? Purple rice? Since you asked, I think I can try (making it) A green briyani I can get you a rainbow one too I’m from the third generation of Geylang Briyani Stall When I first started working it was hectic and very tiring but as time goes by, I got used to the lifestyle Now it’s okay In the past, I really had to measure (ingredients) Now I just throw things in It’s a family business My father, my aunties, my uncles Everybody can do everything The cooking part only my father and I can do The selling part, everybody can do Briyani goes well with mutton You’ll find the chicken and mutton tender because the fire is kept small You have to cook the mutton for a very long time You need to soak the mutton for at least three hours to make it soft Every day, it’s the same routine We start preparing at six o’clock We start selling at ten o’clock Usually we close about three or four in the afternoon If we finish by two o’clock then it’s very good What’s so special (about our stall)? I think because it’s been passed down from grandfather to father to son The thing that inspires me is his patience I don’t have that kind of patience When a customer comes the very “action” type I can’t handle that kind of customer My father can He’ll smile and just layan (entertain) treat the customer nicely That’s the thing I need to learn from him You must smile Whatever he says, whatever he does whatever he wants I must take care of it The most important thing is to smile You see uncle’s face not marah (angry) Smile only
