When it comes to Nizami or Hyderabadi cuisine, I love my Chicken 65 and Dum Biryani. But there are a host of other dishes to try and Dil-e-Nizam provided a perfect opportunity to me.
Located in Sector 14, Gurgaon, it is a delivery outlet. The order came well in time and was neatly packed, the way I specified. Well, my specifications are nothing compared to the perfect dinner that they sent me with their variety of flavours. So here are a few of them :
Bharwa Tangri Kebab : I am a big fan of Tangri Kebabs and when they are stuffed, I can surely say I will have a food coma. Firstly, the leg pieces were enormous and were generously stuffed with a rich mixture of chopped onions, garlic, yoghurt, minced chicken and spices. The resultant was a heavily loaded chicken leg pieces with the eruption of so many flavours. The kebabs are slightly tangy, slightly spicy and way too juicy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Dum Gosht : So I wanted to try a different dish and ordered this one. And I must say I do not regret my decision. The gravy is the highpoint of the dish. It is well conjured, creamy, tangy due to the presence of tomatoes and yoghurt, spicy due to red chili powder and hot because of cinnamon. The occasional sweetness of fried chopped onions and pungency of garlic will surprise you. And the mutton pieces are well cooked, chewy and juicy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Chicken Dum Biryani : This biryani can actually give the one cooked by Biryani Blues a stiff competition. Because their chicken pieces are heavily imbued in spices. When all the layers of the Biryani are mixed, the white of the rice changes to the dark brown of the spices. Moreover, the chicken pieces are chewy, soft and juicy and speak spicy every time you have them. The rice is well made and fragrant. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
