9 Best Street Foods in Hyderabad

By  | 

Hyderabad street foods are some hot and spicy meals you cannot resist if you are touring the city. The breakfasts start from the Pragati College Road. They serve south Indian dishes of idli, dosa, vada, etc. light and heavy enough for breakfast. The lunches are preferably in the Nizam way, munching on some delicious Hyderabadi Biryani and the dinners could be a mixture of food from different states which start up from the Sindhi Colony, serving Punjabi Pao Bhaji’s, Bombay Chats, some Chinese and Italian food too.

1. Hyderabadi Biriyani:

You get Hyderabadi Biriyani everywhere in Hyderabad, from the streets to the expensive restaurants and the recipe doesn’t differ. The recipe was brought in by Muslims travelers and its usage in Nizam is so popular that it is available all over the city and at all times. Goat meat, marinated with spice, is placed in the middle of utensil, inside the Basmati rice and then it is covered and is kept under fire to cook. The flavor of the meat and the spices get absorbed into the rice and gives it the delicious taste.

2. Snacks:

Those look like some tasty snacks below. These are known as Samosa’s. A batter of flour is made and then thickened. Little pieces are taken out of it and then stuffed with cooked potato and then fried. In the picture we can see Samosa being sold with chilies and lemon.

3. South-Indian Dishes:

These are south Indian dishes made from the ‘Dosa’ batter. ‘Dosa’ is an Indian Pancake which is spread over the ‘Dosa’ making ‘tawa’ and fried thin and crispy. They are served plain or along with stuffing or potato, onion, sometimes cheese, etc. ‘Uthapam’s’ are a heavier form of a pancake which is made with toppings of different sorts. They are sold along with a curry called ‘sambar’ and ‘chutney’. We also see a ‘sada vada’ which is a deep fried circular shaped, made from same batter.

4. Chicken Shawarma:

These are meat of chicken stuck on an iron rod over a heating machine which keeps on roasting the chicken to make it edible enough. They are served with a chapatti and are added with vegetables and mayonnaises and are extremely tasty.
