Delectable and delightful, the Nizami cuisine in Hyderabad is every gourmand's dream come true. And it is not just about the food, it is also about the history behind every dish that makes this cuisine so popular.
The great range that Nizami cuisine offers will leave even the most ardent food lovers satiated. The city's many specialty restaurants are home to the most authentic Nizami cuisine. A meal here isn't just that... it's an event. Start with the juiciest kebabs and steaming hot shorbas (soups); then move on to the famous Hyderabadi Biryani. Biryani is best had with the spicy Mirchi ka Salan (a spicy chilly based curry) and the delicate Raita (yogurt & mint dip) and salad. The unique flavours are sure to mesmerize the most robust hearts. But that's certainly not all, the decadent Mogul curries with the different kinds of rotis will make you a lifetime fan of Nizami Cuisine. Also, popular is the famous Haleem, especially during the holy month of Ramzan. No meal here is complete without the rich, sinful desserts. Kulfi, Dabal ka Meetha (crispy fried sweetened bread with nuts), Khubani ka Meetha (apricots puree) or just the good old Gulab Jamuns will bring this grand meal to a perfect end.
