+1 to it!

The sambar made of these is heavenly and so is the dry fry or poriyal. Its usually called "sambar onion" in Hyderabad.

I am happy to know Vasantha Bhavan serves this! I have to go there now!

From when did Avial become a Tamil Stew? There are even proverbs in Malayalam with Avial.

Correct, really healthy, but many people do not like the taste (which is personal). I like it VERY much, in fact, I get the same here in Germany too.

I'm not sure if Avial is a Kerala dish or Tamilnadu dish, but I know from a few Tamil friends of mine that Avial is a widely prepared curry in Tamilnadu. Of course it's not a stew, and far from being one. I guess Avi was thinking of some other curry when he typed Avial. Apparently Adai Avial is a famous Tamilnadu preparation. The adai is more or like a slightly thicker version of dosa, and you have it with avial. It tastes good. I've tried it once, recently.

as far as I know Avial is a kerala dish that enjoys great popularity in TN too. The recipe is the same in both states I think.

,
I was brought up in a Tamilian colony where my mom picked up making this dish and many other tamilian dishes like addai ( which i totally adore) and always thought its a tamilian dish.

Thanks for correcting me that its a Keralite dish. Finally, I like one dish from Kerala

@Jayded, my favorite combination with Addai is Shengha Chi Pudi ( Maharastrian peanut based powder chutney which my mom makes it gulbarga style which is little pastey and that is mixed in curd and given tadka.....Heavenly...closest is the peanut butter that you get abroad)

Addai and SCP is a combination that I can kill for.....

Good news for the lovers of Bihari cuisine in Hyderabad. An outlet called Litti's has opened at the SamePlace food court near IOCL petrol pump on Madhapur main road.

The reportedly have Bihari delicacies like Litti-Chokha, sattu paratha etc on the menu.

People from Bihar or those familiar with that cuisine may please review this joint.

This cuisine is new for most of us so I think it would not be fair to review it without being familiar with it.

Interesting. I would like to try out the cuisine. What are the typical Bihari delicacies? Non-veg only please.

Thanks Avi,GadgetFreak,NoRules

We had 2 backtoback events on Friday nite and Sunday. Friday night we spent at Greenpark having midnite buffet.
On menu was
Payashorba - good,
Haleem - Good,
Butter Chicken Curry- Too yummy,
Chicken and Mutton Biriyani - Good. ( i liked the chicken more ) .
There were no exclusive starters for Veg/non veg . Even the veg spread was very good with quite good vegg curries and pulaos.
On desserts there was a disaster with Rasgollas as they tasted more like hard styrofoam balls but hot jalebi made up for it.

On the whole it was a nice meal but i would have loved to have some more starters.

For 2 people total exp- 900 ( incl all taxes) . You people can perhaps judge this based on cost with other places like Ohris ?

Ok. On Sunday we went to BBQ Nation , a very long time after it was defamed with Food poisoning.

On Grill was Fish - very good,
Chicken- good,
Prawns: Very juicy and succulent as always. The thing i always loved about BBQN.
Off the grill:
Mutton Sheek - Nice,
Tangdi Kabab - A big very hot spicy Tangdi Piece - loved it.
On the veg the mushrooms and paneer tikka tasted good.
Maincourse highlights - (Havent tasted the veg side though ) ,
Biriyanies were good,
Fish curry- Tasty and
Crab Curry - Lovely and flavorful.
Good spread of desserts as well - Pastries,mousse,Choc browniees,Gulabjamoons,puddings,icreams and freshfruits.
Total Bang! : 1700 for 2 ( Incl of all taxes)
May sound pricey but absolute bang for people with voracious appetite for starters and desserts.
Fact that you are served with entire plater of non veg like Chicken,Mutton,Fish,Prawns and Crab.
I find it a very good place to have your looooong and relaxed dinner for couple of hrs with some live music and loads of good food spread around you served hot and loads of gossip , much more fun if you are going in big groups .

We make that style too since mom is from Gulbarga which is Northern Karnataka, we make the spicy peanut powder too that goes with bakri (Jowar or Bajra)

I visit my grandmom in Helikhed ( Bidar district) quite often and we are served with this powder with dry bakris ( made a day before and eaten when its crisp)

+1. Even Iam interested in NV items. I have seen the Littha Choka and Sattu Parantha on HOMP and they didnt visually appeal me

Bihar is not really a place known for its cuisine ( atleast thats my understanding)

GP is known for its disaterous dessert. I have mentioned it every time i reviewed it. However, I will go back there again and again only for 3 items

Paya Shorba
Haleem
Biryani

BBQ Nation is a very good place to eat. It never disappointed me too. But, it is a dangerous place to go because you will eat a week's meal in one sitting

As per the menu posted in Zomato, there are a few chicken items like "chicken stew" and in a non-veg thali there is a "chicken prepared in traditional way" or something like that.

I think there is no place in India without an interesting cuisine. Its just a matter of good marketing.

For example outside India "Indian food" means only Punjabi or Mughlai food.
Even in north India "South Indian food" means nothing apart from "idly-dosa-sambar-curd rice". Boring!
