Ten-Second Takeaway

From Lucknow to Hyderabad to Kolkata and an array of curries thrown in for good measure, Biryani By Kilo has all our biryani desires worked out to a T.

Biryani Is Bae

Yup, it is! If you like your rice loaded with meat, potatoes and deem {egg}, then head to Kolkata with an option of mutton and chicken {surprisingly, we liked the chicken more}.

Since biryani is nothing if not rice and {loads of} mutton then it has got to be Lucknowi for those of you who like to taste the mutton for what it is – sheer deliciousness. It’s the quality of rice and cuts of meat that need special mention here because it’s hard to hide those flaws in layers of masala. The Lucknowi Biryani at Biryani By Kilo is light, low on spice and high on flavour, we didn’t even need the raita, chutney or onions with this one!

But if spice is your thing, then choose Hyderabad, the land of all things fire and yum. There’s a choice of egg, veggie, chicken and gosht, and for this region, it sways between chicken and veggie.

Curry On

Don’t stop at rice, do yourself a favour and try the Dum Nihari Gosht, probably one of the finest among delivery options in Gurgaon and Dwarka. We slathered this on a ulta tawa ka paratha and went straight to heaven.

Saucy Sides

mutka-phirni_editedParty or no party, meaty sides are always a good idea and lo and behold, these guys serve up a mean portion of Chicken Wings and Mutton Galouti Kebab. So now everyone is sorted.

Finish with the Phirni and then hit the bed because with these kinds of preps and portions, there’s really nowhere else you can be headed.

So, We’re Saying…

Junk the plates and choose between half kg and one kg portions, and instead of sweating it out in the kitchen at your next party, you doll up and wait for the doorbell.
