Get Your Nihari Fix At These 8 Iconic Kolkata Joints
Haven’t had your fill of nihari yet? This rich, slow-cooked meat stew is on our list of favourite breakfasts, and we found a few places where you can grab the best ones.
These guys are synonymous with nihari in Kolkata. Shop opens at 4 am and almost immediately you’ll find a crowd nestled around, all waiting for one thing — beef nihari. It sells like hot cakes at INR 140 a plate, along with dal puri or tandoori roti at INR 5 per piece. Non-beef people, you can have the mutton paya (it has the same gravy used in the nihari) for INR 80. Get there early — it gets over by around 7am to 8am.
This tiny age-old establishment may not have the most presentable ambience, but serves mouthwatering Mughlai food at seriously cheap prices. The beef nihari costs INR 45 and is available 4 am onwards. The winter breakfast menu includes mutton paya for INR 65, and dal puri/tandoori roti for INR 5.
This is kind of an institution for Mughlai cuisine in this city, Shiraz serves a mean mutton paya and lamb nihari during winters as breakfast. They often run out as early as 6:30 am! We recommend you give them a call before heading there. Price INR 130.
