Who doesn’t love biryani?? Everyone does!! Whether having it while meeting your gang of friends, enjoying it with your colleagues at office lunch or having it with your family on a Sunday afternoon.
With our ever growing love for food, Last week we got an oppournity to catch up with friends over lunch at this amazing place, Ammi’s biryani. Ammi’s biryani is predominantly a take-away and delivery place. Their eatery is not very spacious and the place very small but serves biryani that is top in its kind.
Ammi’s Biryani has come up with an interesting concept of biryani meals in a box. One can see that a lot of thought has gone into the concept, giving the a small packet of paper napkins, spoon and even a small box to leave your bones in. While I wish they had given a fork and knife too, nonetheless it was surely a different way to have it.
We started with Sulaimani chai(Rs.25) which is a Mint flavoured hot black tea with lemon giving a perfect refreshing feeling. We also had Aam Panna (Rs.35) which is a Raw mango flavoured beverage with a blend of Indian masalas, a perfect heat buster.
They have a variety of biryanis to choose from, we tried the Chicken Hyderabadi biryani (Rs. 225)¸ Mutton hyderabadi biryani (Rs.275) and the Hyderabadi Pindi Chole Biryani (Rs.150).
The chicken biryani was the usual satisfying fare with nothing that stands out ,but the Pindi Chole was richly flavoured and one cannot miss the meat in it. The mutton Hyderabadi Biryani tastes amazing with the mutton cooked to its perfection and the meal not too greasy. The Lasooni Tikka (Rs. 155), The tikka was soft, tender and cooked just right. But what stood out for me was the Gobi Kasundi (Rs. 110) which was lightly flavoured and yet extremely delicious and the Achari Aloo (Rs. 110) which was richly spiced and delightfully tangy.
While going through the menu i also thought of trying Chicken kheema pav (Rs.115) which is one of their signature dish. The kheema pav was not too spicy niether was it less spicy, it was perfect to taste.
Moving over to desserts we tried Kashmiri meetha (Rs.50) grinded with pineapple and prepared with jelly, which is like a custard but taste amazing . The Matka Phirni (Rs.50) was quite delicious. It is prepared with sooji & khova served in a clay pot. As soon as you take one spoon of it you feel like having more and more the feeling doesn’t stops.
Mumbai’s most biryani outlets would have their in-dining service well oiled, it’s the delivery mechanism that I was extremely impressed with it. Moreover in today’s date, when people are constantly juggling between their craving to eat healthy and tasty, this is place is quite apt for them. Since it serves biryani that isn’t cooked in oil for a change.
You can see your tongue melting under the exotic flavours and spices as you take every single spoonful of the biryani and relish the taste forever.
Well, that’s exactly how one would feel in just the first visit to this amazingly incredible place Ammi’s biryani. Check it out yourself to try a biryani that you would have never had before!
