The Nawayath people, who call Uttara Kannada home, take immense pride in the culinary traditions that they have crafted over time. At the cornerstone of their cuisine is the Bhatkali Biryani that has captured the affection of biryani lovers from all over. What sets this style apart is the onion and tomato gravy that is first made using a range of spices. Once this gravy is ready, the meat is then added in and layers of rice are then heaped on. While Bhatkali biryani is not found easily in Bangalore, the Alibaba Cafe and Restaurant, in Frazer Town, has been dishing it out for long.
