Downtown Hyderabad Hotel Now Serves 'Cuisine of the Riyasats'

Bidri, Indian Specialty Restaurant at Hyderabad Marriott Hotel & Convention Centre; Adorns a New Menu, Serving Cuisine of the Riyasats

HYDERABAD, INDIA--(Marketwire - Jul 20, 2012) - Bidri, one of the finest restaurants in Hyderabad, is known for serving the best Hyderabadi cuisine around. The Indian specialty restaurant has taken a step ahead and now presents something different and untried -- Cuisine of the Riyasats. The new menu features traditional cuisines from the dynasties of Lucknow, Kashmir, Hyderabad and Andhra.

History speaks of wars and conquests. History also speaks of aroma and flavors. After tiring wars and invasions, the Shah's and Nawab's of different regions relished marvelous flavors of the Riyasati Kitchens. This Riyasati Culture might have been devoured by the sands of time, but the legacy of the cuisine and its aromas and flavors still live on. Bidri resurrects those fine flavors to give its guest the ultimate experience of culinary marvel at the downtown Hyderabad hotel.

Chef Ravinder Singh Panwar, celebrated Chef De Cuisine at Bidri, has introduced the city to the cuisines from the Kitchens of ruling dynasties of India. Taking influence from Persian and Afghani Cooking, other restaurants and hotels in Hyderabad cannot compare to the dining experience at Bidri.

He adds to the menu traditional preparations such as Neer Nalli Kodi from Andhra, Chaunk Ki Dal from Lucknow, Deccani Saag from Hyderabad and traditional Sikandari Raan from the Kashmiri kitchens. The menu also includes rare dessert classics such as Kheer, Malai Kufi, Qubani ka Meetha and Sheer Kurma; giving the guest a true blue experience of Cuisine of the Riyasats.

Giving an insight to the Hyderabad restaurant's concept, Ramesh Jackson states, "The People of Hyderabad are experimental; and enjoy trying different cuisines. The city is also very familiar to the flavors cooked out of the Nizami Kitchens. With the concept of the Cuisine of the Riyasats we have tried to familiarize city denizens to flavors from kitchens of Riyasats in India."
