Today, Hyderabad is more or less synonymous with biryani, at least in the south. Biryani was first made in the royal kitchens of the Mughals, and today, it is a comfort food that is loved by Indians from all parts of India. The latest food trend in the city is the increasing popularity of nalli gosht biryani.
In Hyderabad, the most popular biryani happens to be chicken biryani, though the local Muslim cuisine completely takes pride in its mutton biryani. However, in both Telugu-speaking states, biryani is equivalent to chicken biryani. The favorite happens to be leg-piece biryani. But it looks like chicken leg-piece biryani will be having huge competition in days to come.
Nalli gosht biryani, as the name suggests, the biryani has an extra edge as it includes the nalli bones, which are considered to be a delicacy when it comes to mutton.
While many are conscious of eating red meat these days, mutton biryani is nevertheless an important component of local cuisine. And the number of food lovers opting for mutton biryani is only increasing by the day. The nalli gosht biryani is an import from Mumbai, where it is extremely popular.
Right now, more and more restaurants and hotels are including nalli gosht biryani in their menus owing to increasing demand. The biryani has rice, mutton pieces, and some nalli bones, making it a bit costlier than other variations. Along with the biryani, the demand for chefs who specialize in nalli gosht biryani has also increased simultaneously.
