It’s chicken, chicken and more of chicken. People of Hyderabad are gorging on chicken like never before say those in the poultry industry. Apparently, Hyderabad is the leading city when it comes to chicken consumption. It is followed by the country’s capital city New Delhi and by electronic city Bengaluru.
It is said that on average around 6 lakh kilos of chicken is consumed in a day. This is followed by 5.5 lakh kilos in Delhi and 5 lakh kilos in Bengaluru. And it’s not mere consumption. Those in the industry share that Hyderabadis also consume a lot more varieties than other cities in the country. We also happen to get the most varieties of chicken dishes that are famous around the world, say food business owners.
A Hyderabadi eats 20 varieties more than his counterparts in other parts of the country it is said. According to food delivery agents, Hyderabadis are said to be binging on chicken for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. Thanks to corona, the craze for food is supposed to have increased in the Greater Hyderabad region.
One of the main reasons for this new craze is the cost of chicken, which is within the reach of all categories of people. Unlike mutton that is costly, chicken is an easy buy. Naturally, mutton sells around 1 lakh kilos vis-a-vis chicken in the city.
The city also has an abundance of poultry farms and chicken is sold to northern states.
