Hyderabad – Biryani the word to associate to the twin city

Biryani …Biryani …Biryani ….Yes most famous food of this place.

September 3rd 2004, evening 8:30, my first taste of Hyderabadi biryani was in The Ohris Banjara. They served the most delicious biryaniI ever tasted. Then throughout my stay for 35 days till I could find a house for rent I was going on eating byrani every day in various places.

I have tasted biryani in most of the places in India and mostly in southern region. But this one Hyderabadi is the best I ever had. The tender pieces of lamb or chicken cooked completely in the aroma of spices and saffron in basmathi rice makes you mouth watering. Most of the places in hyderabad serve biryani . Especially the demand is more for Mutton(lamb) Byrani.

The oldest places in hyderabad is where you get very good biryani , in and around Charminar. Hotel Paradise, Bawarchi, Cafe Bahar, Hyderabadi Biryani House are very good. The combination of the rice with Mirichi Ka Salan and raw onions is the killer taste. My favorite is Hotel Paradise. I recommend any new visitors who come to hyderabad to visit this place. My unforgettable moment is when we group of 4 people including me went out to paradise and ordered a family biryani . My god the food came in such a huge plate and we 4 couldn’t finish it off. It’s so tasty and well cooked. A gentle push with your fork or knife into the lamb, the meat gets cut into two. It’s so tender.

So if you are in hyderabad enjoy the bryani. If you are visiting hyderabad never miss out this.

    mate, good to know that you’re loving it :)
    kindly change the spelling of this most
    delectable of hyderabadi preparations to ‘biryani’.

    half the magic is in getting the name rite.

    I don’t want to spoil the biryani party but I hope it is prepared in such a way as to be relatively sparing of saturated fat, the kind which tends to get deposited in the arteries of the heart, rather like a river getting silted. If the major coronary arteries become clogged, one has a heart attack. The principal culprit in this process is saturated fat, found in butter (ghee) and coconut oil, and even more the trans-fat in Dalda. It is not advisable to consume more than 30 grammes of saturated fat a day, unless you are an athlete or an unusually active person. In recent years I have heard of several people dying suddenly of heart attacks while still in their 50s and 60s. Your cholesterol count can give you an idea of whether this process is at work in you. When I was in Hyderabad three years ago, I was glad to see groups of people walking and running early in the morning in the University Gardens. Enjoy your meals by all means while being mindful of nutrition.
