Haldiram Hyderabadi Biryani: Imposter, Not Worth a Penny

It was my eternal craving for Hyderabadi Biryani that led me to try the frozen version peddled by Haldiram's minute khana.

If you love Hyderabadi Biryani, I strongly suggest you shun the imposter offered by Haldiram in frozen curry aisles of Indian grocery stores.

At best it can be described as a mildly flavored Tomato Bath rice.

And definitely not Hyderabadi Biryani.

For, an authentic Hyderabadi Biryani oozes spice, strong flavor, packs a lot of heat and is a yummy rice delight.

Haldiram's version of Hyderabadi Biryani is Zero on heat.

Not a Biryani

forget about Hyderabadi Biryani, there were multiple reasons why I did not feel I was even eating even Biryani.

Packaging & Instructions

Packaging is neat and the Biryani rice tray was sealed with a plastic film.

If there's one thing I liked about Haldiram Hyderabadi Biryani, it's the heating instructions.

Three minutes heating before and after removing the plastic film were perfect.

Haldiram's Hyderabadi Biryani Rating

If you enjoy Hyderabadi Biryani, I recommend you avoid Haldiram's Hyderabadi Biryani frozen rice dish like a plague.

Instead, walk upto Dakshin Express on Oak Tree Road in Edison or Trupti Biryani on Green St in Iselin and order a plate of Biryani dine-in or takeout.

For the Hyderabadi Biryani peddled by Haldiram minute khana is zero on heat, low on spice and flavor and worse tasted like Tomato rice. - © OakTreeRoad.us
