Although Mandi is quite a popular dish all through Hyderabad, for the ones who do not know about it yet, it's basically a rice dish originating from the Middle East, particularly Yemen. Unlike Biryani, rice is cooked separately and the meat is done separately, that too mostly in Tandoor. One stark difference between the two would be that Mandi is much more subtle as it has fewer spices.
Coming to the food
Mutton Juicy Mandi - The best mutton mandi period. The mutton mandi was brilliance. I never had such a brilliantly cooked tender mutton anywhere.
The rice quantity is perfect and more than other places I have had mandi. Generous amount of dry fruits make it a delicious affair.
Kunafa is a specialty and so is Baklava.
