Hyderabad Eatouts


Hyderabad has a set a trend in gourmet meals, exquisite style and table manners, a legacy of the courts of the Nizams. The cuise concentrates on the rich flavour of meats and rice. Biryani is a highly flavoured rice dish with liberal quantities of meats and spicy curries. Nahari and Roomali Rotis are very popular. Kebabs of various type can be eaten by themselves with a chutney.  Of late, pubs, fast food joints and western speciality cuisine restaurants have come up in the city. It is justifiably proud of its delicious Andhran cuisine. One can also try haleem —a preparation of pounded wheat with tender portions of meat, garnished with crispy fried onion rings. Nahari sheep trotters and spices stewed overnight over a slow charcoal fire, and eaten with hot bread cakes, is yet another of Hyderabad delicacies. Two dessert items deserve special mention-the rich creamy sheer birinj flavored with crushed almonds and garnished with rose petals and Shahi Tukre topped with a fine sheet of edible silver foil. Of course, one can never forget that Hyderabadi grapes have a taste of their own. Be warned; some of the vegetarian chili dishes can be real tearjerkers.
