Biryani is life! And it comes in all types such as Lucknow, Ambur, Dindigul, Mughlai, Donne, Awadhi, Malabar etc. However the spices and ingredients remain the same, the method of cooking is different. Dum biryani, Pakki biryani, Kacchi biryani, Cooker biryani and the list goes on… But have you heard about clay pot biryani yet?
Well if not! Time to head to Rasavid Restaurant which is known for serving the best Hyderabadi dum biryani for more than 6 years in Chennai.
What makes it awesome?
Let us tell you, at Rasavid, the Hyderabadi biryani is prepared using the dum method. The food is placed in a round clay pot and dough is used to create a tight seal to prevent steam from escaping. The food is then cooked over a slow fire allowing each ingredient to release its maximum flavour, preserving the nutritional elements at the same time.
Grains of rice are well – cooked yet do not stick to one another. In the end when the seal is broken and the fragrance of biryani floats in the air. The meat is so soft that it literally comes out of its bone.
This is an awesome experience you can enjoy with clay pot biryani since the pot is unopened and rice is untouched until delivered.
Anything for vegetarians?
Vegans don’t get disappointed! While the mutton and chicken dum biryani steals the show, there’s also a vegetable version of the biryani which is made using carrots, cauliflower, potatoes, etc called the Tarkari biryani or Tahiri in the menu.
What else is new?
Like matka biryani, bamboo chicken is a dish that grabs attention due to its rustic appeal. Small pieces of chicken are marinated by a special masala, then placed on bamboo leaves, wrapped and filled in the hollow stems. These are then placed over a wood fire and slow cooked for 30 minutes until done. During the process, care is also taken by rotating the stems to ensure uniform cooking of the meat. This fiery piping hot chicken makes your taste buds numb and gets you teared up. When cooked and served in a bamboo shoot makes us feel so close to nature.
There are multiple locations in Chennai so hit up the one which is the closest to you.
