Enjoy Telangana Cuisine
Food is essential for life; therefore let’s make it good!
Congratulations to all of you on the second anniversary of the formation of Telangana state. Amid all the celebrations and festivities, one thing that has drawn huge attention is the distinct cuisine of Telangana. It is considered to reflect the people’s zest and is an orgy of flavors. You can now get the best of Telangana cuisine in budget hotels of Secunderabad.
Being in the hospitality industry for quite some time, we at Lotus Grand acknowledge that it is good food that makes people come back to us time and again. We are one of the best budget hotels in Hyderabad and Secunderabad and have chefs who have perfected Telangana cuisine.
In our past blogs, we spoke a great deal about Deccani cuisine and Hyderabadi cuisine. Though Telangana cuisine has been inspired by these cuisines, it has a very distinct character of its own. Though according to the topography the terrain has more production of millets, Telangana is famous for its use of tamarind and red chilies. Jowar and Bajra are predominantly used to make breads.
The nostalgia that one gets with the very mention of Jonna rotte and sajja rotte with talakaya kura is immense. Under the shade of banyan trees, one would enjoy a meal with all their relatives. Everyone would egg others to have more helpings of the delicious curry in a spirit of camaraderie.
The spirit of Telangana is reflected in its food. The flavors are tangy, spicy, and earthy. People here relish both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes with equal fervor. When it comes to sweets and savories, sakinalu, garijelu, bobbattu, bhakshalu and ariselu are preferred more.
When it comes to the preparation of curries, people of Telangana prefer to use lots of sesame, asafetida, coriander seeds, red chilies, tamarind, and spring onions. The ineffable list of dishes that take the taste buds on a journey of piquant surprises is endless.
Of late, hoteliers have recognized the fact that there is a lot of demand for the Telangana cuisine and have come up with a lot of food festivals to cater to this demand. They have traveled along the length and breadth of Telangana to come up with recipes that were restricted only to those areas. Dishes like Warangal kodi kura, Nizamabad veg kurma, and Karimnagar mutton curry are on the menu lists of star hotels.
Budget hotels in Secunderabad and Hyderabad are not left behind in this race. Even they have come up with dishes that reflect the amazing flavor of this land. People in India are connoisseurs of food and they are adventurous to explore new flavors. Such people would certainly have a treat exploring Telangana cuisine.
The spicy and tangy top notes and the soft interiors are but true reflections of the people of Telangana. Hitherto unexplored dishes like birakaya royyala kura, uragaya mamsam, velligadda endragayalu, and many more have gained popularity.
We at Lotus Grand Hotel are true connoisseurs of food and we welcome you to come and explore the flavors of Telangana. As a 2-star hotel in Secunderabad, we have had the privilege of serving many guests with gastronomic delights of this land and we wish to continue the same for the years to come.
