World Food Day 2020 : Hyderabadi cuisine



World Food Day 2020

Who doesn’t love food. And today on the occasion of World Food Day, lets talk about food and nothing else. Over years, people have devoured various kinds of food that is from local, traditional and street food, to seafood and vegetarian food, to top culinary food delights to satiate one’s food cravings.

When it comes to street food places like Amritsar, Mumbai, Jaipur and Chennai are the places to try. In the seafood category, Kochi leads the way and is followed by Calangute, Varkala, Mangalore and Candolim. And when it comes to vegetarian food, travellers seem to prefer Chennai, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Shirdi.

Lets us see what our city, Hyderabad has to offer on the occasion of World Food Day 2020

Hyderabadi’s like to feast on numerous items as this City of the Nawabs offers many varieties. Some items which has remained in the minds of travelers or us locals are the following.

  • Hyderabadi Biryani.
  • Hyderabadi Haleem.
  • Hyderabadi Marag.
  • Mutton Samosas
  • Kebabs or Grilled Meat.
  • Mutton Dalcha.
  • Dum Pukht.
  • Kubani ka Meetha.
  • Pesarattu Dosa
  • Nihari.
  • Mirchi Ka Salan
  • Phirni
  • Boti Kebab

The food is distinctly different from other variants available in the country. If we take Biryani for instance, it is a celebration dish of basmati rice and mutton along with yoghurt, onions and various spices.

Not just that, Telangana in its cuisine, there is special place for roti’s made from millets, such as jonna rotte along with a gravy or curry is called Koora and Pulusu made out of Tamarind.

Hyderabadi’s always knew their food and took their culinary affairs seriously so much so that the first Nizam of Hyderabad, Qamar-ud-din Khan, chose to give the humble Indian bread, ‘kulcha’, a special place on the official flag of their kingdom !

Thus, Hyderabad’s Deccani cuisine is a beautiful amalgamation of the local Telugu, Marathwada and Muslim cultures where dishes of rice, wheat and meats are skillfully cooked with herbs, spices and natural edibles along with their Hyderabadi Chaay ofcourse. This is something one should not miss. Now that restrictions have eased out why not try out these items if you are on your way to the City of Pearls.
