According to their site, Behrouz is an ancient city in Persia, which was well noted for its earthy biryanis. The story shown on the site was pretty interesting about the conquest of Cyrus the great on the lands of Behrouz and how he came to to experience this flavourful biryani. However, being a history lover myself, I was not naïve enough to believe in the story which was definitely a lovely read.
But I am highly impressed by the ingenuity of their aromatic Hyderabadi biryani. Adorned at the top with finely sliced almonds and coriander, possessing highly tender chicken pieces and drenched in spices, this biryani is one of a kind. The dish reeks classiness in every morsel. And the saalan and the raita served are not the usual ones you get at a typical Mughlai/Hyderabadi joint. The saalan is thick, has the wonderful flavours of rai seeds and fried curry leaves and is spicy to the core. The raita is innovative as well – pudina/minty flavour – who could have thought of that? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
