Hyderabadi cuisine is known for its tradition and richness. Even every day food is rich in flavour, with special masala pastes, while delicacies are even richer with abundant use of dry fruits and dairy products. We often find ingredients like cashew paste and fresh cream being used in gravies. Likewise, dry fruits and nuts are also used extensively, not only in desserts and sweets but also in savoury dishes like koftas, pulaos, subzis and snacks. This is due to the long period of Mughal rule in that region and the indestructible mark they have left on the culture and cuisine of the city.
Biryani have become synonymous with the Hyderabadi cuisine of that region. Biryani is a very richly flavoured rice preparation in which the rice is cooked with flavour-packed gravies, whole spices, veggies and other ingredients. The sequence in which the ingredients are added to the Biryani and the way the rice is cooked are all significant steps that make a Biryani perfect! Nowadays, it is easy to make Biryani using a pressure cooker or microwave oven, but the traditional method of cooking them in earthenware or closed handis gave them a special flavour and irresistible aroma. Likewise, kulchas and brinjal based dishes are also very famous in Hyderabad.
Enjoy our vast collection of Hyderabadi recipes. My favourites are Qabooli Biryani, Hyderabadi Veg Haleem, Bidari Paratha and Burhani Raita.
