We have all heard about the ATMs that dispense cash, right? But have you heard about a biryani vending machine? Well, there is one! In Chennai. Though mass-produced, packaged food is not appealing, this Chennai-based startup’s vending machine biryani is a must-try!

The Bai Vettu Kalyanam, or BVK, in Chennai, has a fully automated and unstaffed biryani takeaway service. This is India’s first unmanned biryani takeout outlet opened in Kolathur. And it features a machine with a touchscreen. The machine shows you a menu and you just have to choose from it. Once you do that, proceed with the payment by scanning the QR code or debit/credit card. It takes a few minutes for your order to get ready. Just click on ‘open door’ and collect your package.

BVK offers biryani that has an authentic taste. They have everything from mutton, egg, chicken and vegetable biryani. They serve portions enough for two people but if you are having a party, they have biryani portions that serve up to eight people. Besides biryani, BVK also serves delicious roast chicken for starters. The CEO wants to open multiple outlets like this where biryani is served via vending machines.

Biryani was first introduced by the Mughals and making it is a tedious process. Moreover, there are so many different types of biryanis like Lucknowi, Malabar, Awadhi, Hyderabadi, Kolkata biryani, Kashmiri, etc and each is made differently. You can use any type of meat while making it. And if you are a vegetarian or don’t like to eat meat, then try making it with vegetables (which is also a biryani).
