Not only in India but Hyderabad food is very popular all over the world for delicious and mouthwatering dishes. To think of Hyderabad is to recall its rich and incomparable cuisine, its wealth of architecture, its refined traditions of gracious hospitality and an exquisitely cultured way of life.
Hyderabad is a heaven for “Food Lovers”.There is nothing to beat Hyderabad delicacies. If there’s something that makes my mouth water, it has to be the traditional Hyderabadi delicacies. Most popular dish of Hyderabad is Hyderabadi Biryani. Ask anybody about their favorite dish of Hyderabad, and they will definitely tell you Hyderabadi Biryani.
Biryani has many variants like Mutton Biryani, Chicken Biryani, Biryani Khaam, Biryani Zard or Zafrani or the most exotic of all Joban Malti Biryani in which mutton, partridges and quails were cooked with rice.
Hyderabad foods are combination with so many delicious Dishes … yummy yummy…
So, on your next trip to Hyderabad never miss spicy and delicious “Hyderabadi Biryani”. Pathar ka Gosht or marinated meat cubes cooked on hot stone is another delicacy of Hyderabad.
Hyderabadies favourite dishes are Hyderabadi Biryani, Paya, Pather ka Gosht, Talawa Gosht, Kebabs, Khoorma and many more. When it comes to sweet then the list is unlimited but my favorites are Qubani ka Meetha, Double ka Meetha and Kheer.
I am lucky enough to be able to taste these dishes every week. My wife makesdelicious Hyderabadi dishes for me, she is expert in cooking but the one dish which I like the most is…yes you are right, it is “Hyderabadi Biryani”.
If you are here during the month of Ramadan (Holy Month of Muslims) then you should never miss “Haleem” the best dish Hyderabad has to offer. Nothing can quite beat the flavor, taste and consistency of the Haleem you get here. Haleem or minced meat cooked with butter and ground wheat. Best places to try Haleem are Pista House near Charminar, Madina Hotel and Nayaab Hotel at Old city and Cafe 555 at Masab Tank. You can order Haleem from home too, but I will recommend you to go there and taste it, as you will get chance to explore food tradition of Hyderabad.
Breakfast mostly consists of khichdi, kheema, khagina (egg and onion curry) along with paratha cooked in fresh home made butter. On festive occasions the breakfast comprised of nahari, kulcha, zaban andpaya prepared with sheep and goat meat. Baghare baingan (spicy eggplant) and mirchi ka salan (green chilli curry) are the popular vegetarian dishes of Hyderabad.
Popular Hyderabadi desserts are double ka meetha (bread pudding), khubani ka meetha (apricot pudding) and seviyon ka meetha (vermicelli pudding). People of Hyderabad are very friendly. If you have any friend or business partner from Hyderabad then you will definitely get invitation for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Don’t say no if you get invited, else you will miss delicious Hyderabadi dishes. Right from cooking to the presentation, Hyderabadis are connoisseurs. Not only the best condiments spiced the food, but the dishes are beautifully garnished, served in the best plates and laid out on fancily embroidered cloth called the Dastar Khan, else on Chowkis and Dinning Table.
If you are lucky enough like me 😉 then you will get invitation for grand functions, where you will get a chance to taste various dishes and desserts. Hyderabadi people do party very often, so your chances of trying these dishes are 100%.
You have a better option… Restaurants of Hyderabad, are a place where you will get to eat each and every dish.
Enjoy your Hyderabad Food Tour!
