Biryani THALI in Bengaluru is a must have treat for all Biryani lovers!

Nandhana Palace

The word Biryani is a treat in itself with its variety in flavor, taste, uniqueness and the fact that there are so many varieties in India to explore! We have always loved Calcutta Biryani, having stayed there for a decade. And likely, we would always resist having Biryani other than the ones we have tried as that’s a risky place to put your foot on. But, being food bloggers, we also wanted to explore the idea of having Biryani belonging to other states and understand the differences that they hold. In South India itself, there are many varieties of Biryani, it’s different in Andhra Pradesh, then in Tamil Nadu, then in Karnataka, Kerala or other districts. The color, texture, ingredients changes with a change of place, giving a plate of Biryani a completely different identity when your location changes. That’s the fascinating part about this royal dish.

What’s more interesting is that we found out that Nandhana Palace, having multiple branches in Bengaluru, serves a Biryani Thali, that consists of 5 different Biryanis. Of course, we visited and tried it out to get a look into what varieties it had to offer. Please note that this Thali is available only for lunch on Thursdays and it costs RS. 349. We visited the Kanakpura  road branch to shoot a Youtube video on this Biryani Thali. It consists of,on a single plate, Veg Biryani, Nellore Chicken Biryani, Nati Koli Chicken Biryani, Supreme Boneless Chicken Biryani and the classic Hyderabadi Biryani. It comes with a side of Andhra curry and Raita. Too much to offer on a single plate, isn’t it? You will get a bowl of each variety on the Thali and the quantity is enough for one person. Having so many varieties of Biryani on a single Thali felt like virtual travelling from one state to another. The fascinating part is that each one tasted starkly different from the other, showing the diversity that exists among various Indian states in terms of food, spices, food habits, food cultures and the basic taste in general. While the Nellore Chicken Biryani was spicy, the Hyderabadi Biryani was on the milder side. The taste of the boneless biryani was balanced and the Nati Koli one offered soft meat along with great flavors. The veg biryani was surely a welcome change on the Thali consisting of 4 types of Chicken Biryani.

Overall, we enjoyed our experience at Nandhana Palace with this interesting Thali. Hope you will visit and try it out as well!
