Coming Soon! Sulemani Chicha’s is all set to bring Bangaloreans the real deal from Hyderabad’s kitchens. Mutton Biryani, Shikampuri Kebabs, and Bagara Baingan are all part of the menu.

Hyderabad On A Plate

Started by Kishore Kumar Gaddam, a food industry veteran, Sulemani Chicha’s is the latest food startup in town. Their menu is made up of recipes that Gaddam has gathered from all his years of living in Hyderabad. And while they do serve all the popular dishes, Sulemani Chicha’s shines a light on wedding delicacies from the region.

When they start operations next week, the startup will deliver through Zomato and UberEats within the 4-5 kilometre radius around Koramangala. They will also be on Swiggy soon. But for those of you who don’t live in the area, you will either have to rely on Dunzo or pick the food up yourself. The prices are pocket-friendly too. They begin at a mere INR 25 and go up to about INR 290.

The Wedding Feast

If you are looking for a starter, then, their Shikampuri Kebabs are an excellent pick. Minced meat is coated in hung curd and shallow-fried, giving it a crumbly exterior that we munched and crunched our way through. We followed this up with heaps of Mutton Biryani {they have chicken and vegetarian versions as well}. The rice, just like any Hyderabadi biryani, was lightly spiced. However, while the helpings of meat were generous, we found them overly salted. Pair this with the Kadhu Ka Daalcha, a thick, lentil curry that’s studded with chunks of sweet pumpkin. The balance in this one was on the dot.

But the showstopper was easily the Bagara Baingan — a tangy curry featuring plump aubergines that have been fried up, on the outside, but still fleshy and soft inside. These curries also go well with the subtly-flavoured Bagara Rice.
